Ohio State Recognized by Heart Association as Fit-Friendly Worksite

Ohio State has been recognized as a Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association (AHA) for helping employees eat better and move more.

“Physical activity and employee wellness are important priorities at Ohio State. We are honored and excited to be recognized by the American Heart Association as a Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite,” said AJ Douglass, senior vice president of talent, culture and human resources. “We’re committed to providing the best workplace environment possible. This will benefit our employees’ health and produce even more positive results for our worksite overall.”

Ohio State achieved this recognition for its wellness culture. For example, the university houses a variety of indoor fitness facilities, promotes free on-campus biometric screenings and offers the YP4H incentive points program, and 97 percent of benefits-enrolled faculty and staff complete an annual personal health assessment through the yp4h.osu.edu website.

The university earned the gold-level designation in 2010 and 2011. Since 2012, the university has earned platinum-level recognition.

AHA’s Fit-Friendly Worksites program is a catalyst for positive change in the American workforce by helping worksites make their employees’ health and well-being a priority.
