SAC Wins Gold

San Antonio College won the “Gold Recognition” for the 2014 Health Workplace Recognition Program. SAC was recognized during a board meeting on Monday, May 19. The San Antonio Business Group on Health (SABGH) and the Mayor’s Fitness Council sponsors the program. 

Dr. Conrad D. Krueger Sr., Dean of Arts & Sciences; Dr. Vernell E. Walker, Dean of Professional & Technical Education; and Chris Dillon, Wellness Coordinator/Instructor, accepted the award for San Antonio College.  

The pilot program began in 2010 with less than 10 participating companies/organizations. Today, the program has grown to include small and large groups and topped the charts last year with 38 applications. With about 1,000 employees, SAC falls into the large group category. The Healthy Workplace Recognition Program evaluates an organization’s commitment to health and wellness for its employees including the following: 

•  Does the company commit to regular physical activity for its employees? 

  Does the company support and encourage health and wellness as part of its culture?  

•  Are there programs such as a step challenge in which employees can participate? 

  Does the company have on-site walking trails? 

  Does the company provide flexible work time for wellness activities?  

•  Does the company encourage the use of stairs instead of elevators/escalators? 

SAC received the Silver Recognition last year. 

Dillon said last year, SAC did not have measurements and evaluations as part of the SAC’s health and wellness program. He said that is the main reason why SAC missed getting the Gold last year.  

This past year, measuring tools were added, said Dillon. He also said a two-year study was started to evaluate the program’s effectiveness. 

“This year we did it all,” said Dillon. “It’s not easy, but we’ve worked really hard.” 

We are trying to provide a service for the employees, to create better health and wellness for them, he added. 

“If we didn’t have the support from the top down, it couldn’t happen,” said Dillon about the support the program gets from the top administrators such as Zeigler. 

Palo Alto will also be receiving an award this year. Dillon said one of his projects for this coming year is to get the other Alamo College campuses on board with a health and wellness program. Maybe in the future, all Alamo Colleges can receive the Gold Recognition. 

“We are heading in a great direction,” said Dillon. “We’re doing great things.”
