The San Antonio Business Group on Health, in collaboration with the Mayor’s Fitness Council, has awarded VIA Metropolitan Transit a Silver-level recognition in the Healthy Workplace Recognition Award Program.
The Healthy Workplace effort calls attention to San Antonio businesses that work to improve the health of their employees through worksite wellness initiatives. To qualify, employers must demonstrate support of wellness programs and provide examples of company culture that encourage health and wellness.
VIA was recognized for its “Thrive” wellness program, an initiative that serves to improve the quality of life for VIA employees through education, activity, empowerment, and support. Thrive goes beyond exercise and nutrition to address a range of health-related issues, and some of the services provided include personalized exercise plans, customized meal planning and nutritional education, health fairs and screenings, seminars, and weight-loss challenges.
