Miami, FL- Bilzin Sumberg is a proud recipient of this year's Florida Worksite Wellness Awards, an initiative from the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County’s Consortium for a Healthier Miami-Dade to distinguish local businesses for their outstanding efforts to promote wellness and improve employees' quality of life.
Bilzin Sumberg is dedicated to providing progressive workplace policies to nurture talent by developing firm-wide human resources programs. Implementing wellness initiatives to promote healthier habits in and out of the office is one way the Firm supports their employees' overall wellbeing.
"We are honored to receive this recognition and to provide our employees with programs that promote healthier lifestyles," said Jackie F. Gallego, Chief Human Resources Officer for Bilzin Sumberg. "We value our entire team and we are committed to nurture our talent."
In addition to wellness initiatives, the Firm's community involvement program, Bilzin Sumberg Cares, provides opportunities for employees and their families to give back to the community through public service and charitable contributions- experiences that can be beneficial for both the mind and the body.
The Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County initiated the Consortium for a Healthier Miami-Dade in 2003 to address the increasing rates of chronic diseases in the local community. The Consortium is comprised of community agencies that work in collaboration to promote healthy lifestyles including a healthy diet, regular physical activity and not using tobacco products. The Worksite Wellness Committee is comprised of a group of dedicated members who promote healthy lifestyles in the work setting by sharing information on best practices and by creating partnerships to implement worksite wellness activities.
