(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA) – The City of Stillwater is proud to once again be named a Certified Healthy Business from the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

This is the fifth year in a row the state department has certified the City.

“This past year we earned merit certification, which is a step up from what we’ve received the previous years,” Human Resources Director Christy Luper said. “We are excited to not only be recognized at the state level for being an outstanding healthy business, but to show growth in our efforts to provide a healthy working environment for all our team members.”

The City of Stillwater offers a comprehensive Wellness program to its staff members. This includes an extensive benefits program, a 24-hour access fitness facility for staff and covered spouses, a Fitbit group and an Employee Assistance Program that offers resources in person, over the phone and online.

The City is also a designated bronze level Bicycle Friendly Business from the League of American Bicyclists.

The Certified Healthy Business program began in 2003 as a way to recognize businesses that are working to improve employee health. To receive a recognition award, a business must be smoke-free indoors and outdoors and meet the required points for their business size.
