General Mills in Wellston earns Healthy Ohio award
(2007-11-23)
(WOUB) - Twenty-two Ohio businesses are being recognized by the state for what they do to help promote the health of their employees.

The businesses, including General Mills in Wellston, all received a Healthy Ohio award from the state this month.

The award recognizes Ohio employers who show a commitment to employee health and wellness.

Last year, General Mills won a bronze award but this year they took home a gold.

General Mills Wellness Coordinator Andrea Myers says the company put a lot of effort into improving the health and wellness of our employees and this is just a reflection of that.

Myers says the company has added an on-site fitness center which offers disease prevention, health fairs and physical therapy screenings.

The center at General Mills in Wellston is open to all employees, spouses and retirees.
