Moore Norman Technology Center has been recognized by the Certified Healthy Oklahoma Program with a Certified Healthy Campus at the excellence level and also as a Certified Healthy Business at the merit level. MNTC will be honored with other award recipients on April 28 during the annual Certified Healthy Oklahoma event at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center in Norman.
According to the Certified Healthy Oklahoma website, recipients of the recognition are seen as leaders in their community for “going above and beyond to make health and wellness a priority.”
MNTC has a wellness program that offers employees tiered incentives for reaching individual health goals. The program offers points for traditional healthy ideas such as physical activities, healthy eating and regular wellness checks with medical and dental professionals. Newer point ideas MNTC uses include yoga, Pilates, Zumba, rowing, cycling and self-defense and healthy cooking courses. Incentives are awarded to employees for each new level of health they achieve.
The Certified Healthy Oklahoma Program began in 2003 and is a free, voluntary statewide certification for businesses, communities, campuses, congregations and more types of organizations. The hope is that Oklahomans will choose healthier eating and lifestyle habits through encouragement at work, school and other places in their communities.
