Chandler, AZ – April 10, 2018– Cambridge Benefit Solutions (CBS) was recently recognized by the Healthy Arizona Worksite Program as achieving the silver level of excellence in worksite wellness.
The Healthy Arizona Worksite Award recognizes employers that are making efforts to positively affect the health and well-being of their employees, their families and their community by implementing comprehensive worksite wellness strategies. The minimum qualifications to be considered for this award include attending the Healthy Arizona Worksite Program training and developing a plan to improve employee health and safety. To qualify for the Silver and Gold levels of the award, employers need to support employee health through policy and systems changes. This year’s newly announced Platinum award recognizes businesses making an impact both within and beyond their walls addressing one or more of the many health challenges impacting communities across the state.
CBS received this recognition by supporting employee health in the following ways:
“Since employees spend nearly half of their waking hours at work, the workplace represents an important setting for promoting healthy behaviors,” said Don Fechter. “Efficient, effective and sustainable worksite wellness initiatives have been shown to reduce healthcare costs. While results at each organization can vary, some employers have realized up to a $6 return for every $1 invested in wellness programs.”
The Healthy Arizona Worksites Program is a public health initiative offered by the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH). Its mission is to help employers learn how to successfully implement worksite wellness initiatives to improve the health of their employees and businesses.

While we are thrilled to have achieved silver status, we will be working hard to move to gold status next year. CBS will be designing additional goals to support employee health and wellness and implementing evidence-based wellness initiatives to help us meet that goal. We plan to implement corporate challenges and offer additional rewards for employee engagement. We look forward to developing a health workplace through the support of the HAWP program.
The Healthy Arizona Worksites Program is available for employers statewide. Visit their website to learn more about the program, training, and other valuable resources.
