MEDIA RELEASE

(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / March 8, 2018) – The City of Stillwater is proud to once again receive recognition as a Certified Healthy Business from the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

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

“We’ve made wellness a priority for our organization and our team members, so it’s special for us to continue to receive this acknowledgement at the state level,” Human Resources Director Christy Luper said. “On top of offering an extensive benefits program, we continue to encourage our employees and covered spouses to take advantage of our 24-hour access fitness facility, track their steps with our Fitbit group and more to work toward a healthy lifestyle.”
 
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.
