Quinnipiac was recently named a leader in workplace wellness by The Business Council of Fairfield County for promoting healthy behavior and recognizing the wellness needs of its employees.

The university was recognized in the platinum category for its wellness achievements as well as its creativity and success in implementing health initiatives. 

The Healthy Workplace Employer Recognition Program highlights the efforts of employers who understand the competitive advantage of a healthy workforce. The recognition program is presented by The Business Council’s Health, Wellbeing and Safety Roundtable, with the leadership support of Aircastle Advisor LLC, UnitedHealthcare of CT, Inc., and USI Insurance Services with Aon.

Quinnipiac was lauded for making great strides in implementing a diverse range of wellness programs, from encouraging physical activity and healthy behavior to managing chronic illness. 

“Reflecting the advances in health and preventative care, we are excited to see this year’s honorees offering program incentives that tie directly back to wellness initiatives,” said Anthony Aguanno, UnitedHealthcare Senior Account Executive and co-chair of The Business Council’s Health, Wellbeing and Safety Roundtable. “We applaud their efforts for creating opportunities for their employees to live happier, healthier and more productive lives.”

“These employers understand the critical link between work-life balance and its impact on an employee’s physical and mental health and well-being,” said Francine Manfredi, project manager, healthy workplaces at the Business Council of Fairfield County. “We commend this year’s winners for recognizing that an investment in each employee as a whole will result in a better engaged, more resilient workforce.”
