Muncie Power Products recently received the Wellness Council of Indiana’s Five Star level of AchieveWELL certification at the 2017 Indiana Health and Wellness Summit in Indianapolis. The company is among four others in Delaware County, an Indiana Healthy Community, to have received this recognition.

Those that have earned the AchieveWELL recognition have established a corporate culture that encourages and supports employee health through worksite wellness programs. Delaware County is one of only two counties in Indiana to be designated as an Indiana Healthy Community. This means the community has worked to develop key components that improve the quality of life for its residents.

Muncie Power Products began its Wellness Program in 2010 and received its Three Star level of AchieveWELL in April 2016. Muncie Power Products has integrated wellness within the organization’s mission and vision through its Wellness Engagement Team, the support of its senior-level leaders and a dedicated wellness program coordinator.

At the foundation of Muncie Power Products’ Wellness Program is an understanding of how important it is to have a holistic approach to wellness. With this in mind, the company has created challenges and educational programs based on eight different dimensions of wellness: physical, environmental, emotional, occupational, intellectual, social, spiritual and financial. Furthermore, the company understands that creating a workplace culture that embraces wellness requires a great deal of communication.

To assist in this aspect, the company has adopted the use of an internal, mobile application that allows employees to connect with one another and receive recognition through messages like Praise for Peers, as well as have quick links to topics like the company’s mission and vision, events, employee directory and benefit information. The Wellness Program works in conjunction with the People Development Department to improve the lives of its employees and expand their career opportunities.
