The Illinois Department of Public Health recently announced that 32 organizations from across the state will be recognized for their outstanding worksite health promotion efforts and receive the newly established “Illinois Healthy Worksite Designation”. One of those worksites is United Stationers in Greenville.

The Illinois Healthy Worksite Designation was created as part of the statewide We Choose Health community transformation grant, which is funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and overseen by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Its purpose is to make communities healthier and reduce chronic disease. Worksite Wellness is one of the strategies selected to achieve the goal in Illinois.

United Stationers received a Bronze Level Healthy Worksite Designation Award for actively promoting and supporting healthy eating and providing and encouraging opportunities for physical activity at work.
