City of Olathe named 2019 Healthiest Employer

Post Date:02/26/2019

The City of Olathe is proud to be named a 2019 Healthiest Employer by the Kansas City Business Journal. Each year, the Kansas City Business Journal works with Healthiest Employers LLC, a data and research company, to measure employer commitment to making health and wellness a priority for their companies based on wellness programming and benefits.

“Wellness isn’t something we DO, it is who we are,” said City of Olathe Wellbeing Coordinator Jana Goolsby. “The goal is to provide resources for employees and promote a climate that allows them to be their best selves, and as a result, it is becoming a part of our culture and who we are as an organization.”

Assistant City Manager Susan Sherman said, “As I reflect on our organization’s continued strides in the area of wellness, I think of the many opportunities that make an impact on our employees and their families. We have fun challenges, exciting outcomes, and we can all share in the hope that our wellness work is making a difference and making our organization and community stronger. After all, our greatest wealth is our health, and our organization's greatest asset is our healthy employees.”
