St. Charles, IL – January 10, 2012 – In their latest issue of Healthcare Consumerism, CDHC Solutions is focusing on the 'superstars' who have exceeded the expectations of their peers and "gone above and beyond" to bring health and wellness into their organizations. For the magazine's 'Most Effective Health and Benefit Plan Implementation' award, CDHC Solutions recognized Bison Gear's Sylvia Wetzel for her commitment, passion and leadership in executing new health and benefit initiatives for the company.
As the Chief Learning Officer of Bison Gear and Engineering, Ms. Wetzel oversees numerous responsibilities; from leading the Skilled Workforce Initiative – a program which seeks to educate future participants in the workforce in manufacturing and foster growth in the skill of entry level manufacturing employees, to serving as President for the philanthropic and humanitarian arm of Bison: BisonCares. Another area Bison and Ms. Wetzel keep close to heart is the overall health of Bison's employees and their families; which is the reason for unveiling this new program that provides free annual health risk assessments, an on-site nurse practitioner available to employees and their families, and cost incentives to living a healthy lifestyle.
"Our associates are offered a health risk assessment annually that we provide and encourage them to participate. The results provide them with medical insight on their individual health blue print. Employees are empowered to select health food choices from our vending machines, and they appreciate having a personal health profile from our coaches and resources to help them live longer, healthier lives." Sylvia Wetzel explains.
