One local company is raising the bar high for employee wellness.
Rocky Mountain Health Plans was just given a gold well workplace award and is the only Western Slope business to ever get it.
Rocky Mountain Health Plans began a fitness program four years ago with an employee walking challenge.
It grew from there to include several nutrition and fitness programs, including yoga classes, a fitness center and two full–time trainers.
The company credits their wellness program with improving the overall health of their organization.
They've noted decreased cholesterol, decreased blood pressure, and fewer smokers among their employees since the start of the program.
