These organizations have found creative ways to make achieving individual and corporate wellness goals fun. Programs include raffle prizes for competing in team exercise and nutrition challenges, discounts for healthy cafeteria food options and themed health fairs. We are thrilled to acknowledge companies committed to creating a culture of health.”
