Go! Healthy Worksite Recognition

Does your employer go above and beyond to support employee wellness? Is your workplace making changes to encourage better nutrition and physical activity opportunities? We want to hear about it!

To recognize Bismarck Mandan area employers who have demonstrated a commitment to their employees’ health by developing and implementing exceptional employee wellness programs, Go! Bismarck Mandan has created the Go! Healthy Worksite Wellness Recognition Program.  The awards acknowledge efforts made by employers to:
