Western Once Again Recognized for Health Achievement by American Heart Association

By on November 1, 2020

Western Municipal Water District (WMWD) has once again received the American Heart Association’s (AHA) 2020 Gold Level  “Workplace Achievement Index” designation.

WMWD is one of 776 organizations that completed the Index assessment this year, evaluating the time period of July 30, 2019 to June 30, 2020. Of the organizations that completed the Index assessment, 35 percent received gold recognition.

“Western is honored to once again be recognized by the American Heart Association for our efforts in promoting a healthy workplace culture,” said Western’s General Manager Craig Miller. “Putting strategies in place that show our employees and the community that their health and wellness is a top priority to Western, especially in light of the recent pandemic, is critical to recruiting and maintaining the highly-skilled workforce needed to keep water and wastewater services flowing no matter what.”

This is WMWD’s third consecutive year being recognized by the AHA for the Index gold level achievement. In prior years, Western was recognized by the AHA Fit Friendly Worksite program.
