Healthiest Maryland Businesses_Silver_ (1)Choptank Transport is pleased to announce it is a silver winner of the Wellness at Work Award recently announced by Healthiest Maryland Businesses. Healthiest Maryland Businesses is a statewide initiative to create a culture of wellness in the workplace and is headed by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. 

 

This year’s recipients will be recognized on June 1, 2018, at the 9th Annual Worksite Health and Wellness Symposium at Martin’s West in Baltimore. The event will focus on acknowledging winners for their efforts to perpetuate a healthy work environment for businesses throughout the state.

 

“We are honored to receive this award,” says Pam Hutchinson, vice president of human resources. We are in an industry that is fast-paced and sometimes stressful. The leadership team has made it a priority to provide employees with ways to improve their health and wellness while at work. Participation is encouraged in events such as smoking cessation classes, yoga classes, healthy cooking classes, and biometric screening. We also provide bicycles on site and a quarter-mile walking track around the campus. We are the only company I know of that has it’s own “ChopOlympics” competition every summer. It’s good for morale and a good way for employees to get a little exercise while having a great time with co-workers.”
