City of Shoreline receives WellCity Award from AWC

Monday, April 18, 2011

from the Office of the Shoreline City Manager
The City of Shoreline recently earned a WellCity Award from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC) Employee Benefit Trust, one of 82 cities receiving the award. The award is based on meeting stringent best practice standards in employee health promotion.

As an award recipient, Shoreline will receive a 2% premium discount on its Regence BlueShield medical coverage for employees and spouses in 2012.

Promoting a healthy workforce is an important goal for the City. In 2005, the City Council established a City Employee Wellness Program that included an employee managed Wellness Committee. The Council recognized that improvements to employee health result in better morale, reduced absenteeism and enhanced productivity and performance. It also means lower healthcare costs.

The Wellness Committee promotes the health and well-being of City of Shoreline employees through fun and educational programs and activities targeting identified health risks.

The City will continue to make employee health a priority.
