AccuRounds Named a 2017 WWCMA WorkWell Massachusetts Program Winner

AccuRounds, an advanced manufacturer of precision components, is proud to have been named a WorkWell Massachusetts Award Program Silver Level winner for exemplary worksite health promotion. The award recognizes AccuRounds’ achievements developing, implementing, and participating in corporate health improvement and wellness programs.

In an effort to increase physical activity at AccuRounds, they established flexible schedule policies so team members can use the onsite fitness center or walk on their indoor and outdoor AccuLap walking paths. They have found that team members gain new practical skills which they can apply at home, re-energize and reduce stress, and collaborate with team members. As part of the program, an onsite garden, the AccuGarden was planted. Team members can volunteer in the garden and enjoy their very own fresh organic produce.

“We are proud to recognize these innovative Massachusetts employers for their outstanding wellness programs,” states Kristie Howard, WWCMA Board of Directors Chairperson. “The WorkWell Massachusetts Award is an important program put forth to honor the work being done by employers in our state to improve the health and vitality of our communities.”

Diane Ferrera, Director of Human Resources at AccuRounds, has seen the positive effects of implementing a wellness program, “By providing a supportive work environment, it makes it easy for team members to engage in healthy behaviors, while providing them with the knowledge, skills, strategies and resources to promote and protect their health."
