Has your workplace gone above and beyond in implementing health and well-being initiatives? Help honor their achievements at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting in early October by nominating them for the Workplace Wellness Award!
Positive total worker health makes a large impact on the businesses and organizations in our community. In partnership with the Cerro Gordo Department of Public Health and Healthy – Mason City, the Chamber is pleased to recognize Sukup Manufacturing Co. with the Workplace Wellness Award.
As the world’s fastest-growing bin company and largest family-owned, full-line grain drying and storage equipment manufacturer, it is no surprise Sukup has taken total worker health to the next level as well. Programs for employees range from disease prevention screenings and nutrition, to stress management and commuter safety.
Sukup Manufacturing recently opened “Sukup Health Solutions”, an on-site health clinic for employees. The space includes two offices, four exam rooms, and one lab - which is staffed by a Registered Nurse and Nurse Practitioner from Mercy Medical Center – North Iowa. Employees are able to schedule an appointment for a variety of services including, biometric screenings, health coaching, immunizations, and smoking cessation.
Sukup sets a great example of the valuable well-being practices employers can provide to workers in the community. Congratulations to the entire Sukup Manufacturing team for going above and beyond to support employee well-being!
