Fit as a Fiddle: Healthy Arizona Worksites Gives U-Haul Gold

Jun 15, 2017

U-Haul continues to boost its credentials as a leading healthy employer in Arizona and the U.S. Adding another award to its growing reserve for promoting Team Member wellness and fitness, U-Haul was named a Healthy Arizona Worksites Program gold-standard recipient June 15 at the American Heart Association’s Halle Heart Children’s Museum in Tempe.

U-Haul received HAWP gold status for the first time last year.

“The fact U-Haul has been honored for a second consecutive year shows the commitment to a healthy workplace and happy, healthy Team Members is real and here to stay,” U-Haul wellness marketing specialist Monique Wantland said.

“We are honored to be a Healthy Arizona Worksites gold recipient again in 2017. With enhancements and new opportunities offered through the Healthier U program, we are confident U-Haul will continue to improve the lives of current Team Members and attract new candidates who seek an employer that prioritizes health and fitness.”

Evidence of Healthy Changes

HAWP recognizes and celebrates employers that have instigated evidence-based health initiatives to improve the well-being of their employees, employees’ families and communities.

U-Haul was among 50 Arizona institutions to meet gold eligibility requirements. That number grew from 27 last year as more companies become increasingly health-conscious. Gold recipients established new goals and/or implemented programs during the past year, and demonstrated their ability to track and document outcomes as well as behavioral change.

U-Haul, the industry leader in DIY moving and self-storage, has taken bold steps to illuminate Team Member health and grow its wellness platform throughout North America.
