The City of Montgomery was recently named one of 25 finalists in the Cincinnati Business Courier’s Healthiest Employers Awards.  Montgomery qualified as a finalist in the category of 2-99 employees for the City’s wellness program, which provides the means for employees to make lifestyle changes and to maintain those changes over time.

The wellness program includes biometric screenings, exercise tracking, preventive programs, nutritional and fitness education, and friendly competition among peers. The wellness program is an effort undertaken by the City to manage health care costs. The program has been in place for more than 10 years and has had a positive impact on health care costs and employee performance.

All finalists were recognized and winners were announced at a May 1 awards breakfast at the Cintas Center at Xavier University.
