The City of Arlington earned the Golden Apple Award and was recognized for its outstanding employee health promotion program in Washington State. The Washington State Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports established the Golden Apples in the 1980s to recognize excellence in promoting physical fitness and health. Today, the Association of WA Cities Healthy Worksite Summit Planning Team recognizes public and private employers across the State who prioritize their employees’ overall health and well-being.
The City of Arlington’s Wellness Program has been in place for 25 years, and we have received the WellCity Award every year since its inception.
The awards are presented to cities with Employee Wellness Programs that meet nine best practices standards for employee health promotion.
As part of the 2022 award, we again earned a 2% discount on our health insurance premiums for the calendar year 2022.
