“Boulder County cares about the well-being of its employees, and this award is affirmation of that commitment. The county’s focus on the health and wellness of county employees is a large part of why we are an employer of choice in a very competitive job market,” said Julia Yager, Director of Human Resources.
To be considered for this honorable award, Boulder County Government was scored via a 1-100 metric that examines six critical elements of workplace wellness:
- Culture and leadership commitment
- Foundational components
- Annual planning
- Communications and marketing
- Programming and interventions
- Reporting and analysis
