 Joplin, MO — July 3, 2019 — Employer Advantage, known for more than 25 years as the trusted Professional Employer Organization (PEO), announced today it has been awarded the Missouri Bronze Level Workplace Wellness Award, and will be recognized at an awards banquet hosted by the Missouri Council for Activity and Nutrition (MOCAN) in Columbia, MO, on July 18.

The Missouri Workplace Wellness Award is a collaboration between the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), Missouri Council for Activity and Nutrition (MOCAN) and the University of Missouri Extension, and was created to recognize employers that invest in creating working environments that support healthy behaviors.

“We are honored to be recognized with this award because it represents our commitment to health and wellness for our employees and our clients,” said Jared Young, Employer Advantage President. “From health fairs and flu shot clinics to wellness initiatives, we believe in providing a healthy and supportive workplace for our staff and assisting our clients in doing the same for their employees.”

Employer Advantage has a Staff Wellness Committee that was specifically formed in order to create new ways to promote health and wellness throughout the organization. Each January, Employer Advantage hosts a health fair open to all employees, clients, and client employees in which health screenings are provided at a very low cost, along with several health assessments from local-area businesses that promote wellness. In October, a flu shot clinic is offered. Employer Advantage’s health plan offers different smoking-cessation options for those wishing to quit, and a free, extensive weight-loss program. Employees are also incentivized with a stipend offered for any gym membership.

In addition, the breakroom at Employer Advantage has healthy snacks and a bulletin board showcasing tips for healthy eating, exercises employees can do at their desk, walking trails around the workplace, and tips on stress reduction.
