The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) was recently awarded a 2021 Healthiest Maryland Businesses Wellness Exemplar Award.
According to the group, the Exemplar Award means that "businesses have well-established worksite wellness practices that promote a culture of health at all levels. Their work is guided by a workplace health improvement plan, and implement all four strategies: policy, programming, benefits, and environmental supports. These businesses and organizations conduct evaluation activities which is used to inform future planning and implementation."
The group previously issued gold, silver, and bronze awards. UMB won the Gold Award in 2020 and 2019.
