Healthiest Maryland Businesses is a statewide movement to create a culture of wellness at work – to ensure that the healthiest choice is the easiest choice. The goals of the program are to raise awareness about the importance of a healthy workforce, and to recruit and recognize business leaders who support workplace policies that support healthy employees, a major economic driver of business’ fiscal health.
Since its launch in 2014, Healthiest Maryland Businesses has grown to over 50 member businesses. The statewide program is loosely modeled after Healthy Howard’s Healthy Workplaces certification program, which recognized businesses promoting workplace wellness for five years, and is funded by a Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene CDC grant through the Howard County Health Department.
