Two of Aquila’s clients managed fitness centers and worksite wellness programs make the top 10 US Federal Agencies list for the best Employee Health & Wellness Programs. The Homeland Security Department’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement Bureau (ICE) ranked number 2, and The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) ranked number 10.
The assessment came in response to President Obama’s June 2014 memorandum directing agencies to enhance workplace flexibilities and work-life programs. It covered 291 worksites at 36 different federal agencies, and was based on responses to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Worksite Health ScoreCard. The federal worksites that participated in the survey earned an average score of 176 out of 286 possible points in categories ranging from promotion of physical activity and weight management, to emergency response to heart attacks and strokes, to help handling stress.
