Mountain America Credit Union Named a Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite

Press Release

November 21, 2012

Mountain America Credit Union has been named a Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association. The award reflects Mountain America’s recognition of the importance of a healthy workplace for employees and the steps the credit union has taken to create a culture of wellness.

“As Americans, we do far too much sitting, even while we are working hard,” said Lynn Stephens, senior vice president of human resources for Mountain America. “So we provide opportunities for our employees to be active, healthy and happy, and in turn, they are better able to keep our members happy. We don’t take good health and all its benefits for granted, and we’re committed to helping our employees enjoy those health benefits as much as possible. Recognition from the American Heart Association is a great acknowledgment of our commitment.”

Over the past five years, Mountain America has implemented engaging wellness programs that attract employee participants at all levels of fitness, such as complimentary yoga, monthly seated chair massages and a comprehensive Wellness Fair that gives employees access to dozens of wellness vendors to gauge their overall health and “know their numbers.” In addition, regular brown bag lunch-and-learn presentations focusing on mental health topics, complimentary one-on-one health coaching, a summer hiking club, walking programs, weight-loss competitions and a 5K day are some of the variety of outstanding wellness programs and events that take place throughout the year. Mountain America was also the first company in Utah to partner with Intermountain Health Care and offer its 14-week “Weigh to Health” class to employees.
