Healthy KC GOLD Certified

Now more than ever we’ve seen the importance of a healthy workforce. We’re proud to announce we have received the Gold Level Healthy KC Workplace Wellness certification from The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Healthy KC Initiative.

This year’s Certified Healthy KC Workplace designation recognizes our efforts to create a workplace focused on health and wellness, as well as creating a more inclusive and equitable environment to ensure employees’ mental health. We’re proud to prioritize the safety of our team, joining more than 130 certified businesses across Greater Kansas City.

The detailed application process examines the actions we are taking as an organization and evaluates these against five pillars of health: nutrition, physical activity, tobacco cessation, work-life integration, and environment.

As a Certified Healthy KC Workplace, the Y has been recognized in each of the five areas for our leadership and policies, resources and engagement tools, and our measures and outcomes.

Healthy KC is a partnership of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC), and a number of regional health and wellness leaders. It is an effort to advocate for real solutions that help shape individual, organizational, and environmental health change through a collaborative, community-wide partnership. It aims to create a culture of health and wellness in Greater Kansas City. Learn more about Healthy KC.
