Anawim Housing has been selected as a finalist in the small business category for the 2020 Healthiest State Initiative Annual Awards.
Anawim was selected as one of 3 finalists in our category based on our company efforts to encourage healthy lifestyle practices and preventative care for our employees through volunteerism, incentivized wellness challenges and staff bonding opportunities. At Anawim Housing, we understand that in order to provide the best care and services, we need to take care of ourselves and check in with our mental and physical health needs on a regular basis. That's why we have a company wellness program that rewards our employees for meeting their personal wellness goals and encourages healthy lifestyles.
The Healthiest State Initiative awards will take place Feb 6th. Winners in each category will receive a monetary gift to continue their work focused on improving the health and well-being of their employees, students or citizens. There are eight categories: Individuals, communities, K-12 schools, early care providers, out-of-school programs and sm/med/large workplaces. All will be recognized for their efforts to improve the physical, social and emotional well-being of Iowans in their respective sectors.
