Governor Shumlin honors area employers

MONTPELIER-Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin and the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports presented awards to 79 Vermont worksites for their employee wellness programs.

The awards honor employers that support staff access to physical fitness activities and promote good health on and off the job.

The awards are given in groupings based on the number of employees at each work site, so that smaller companies do not compete against larger ones. In each size category several levels of awards may be given: Gold Standard for past Gold recipients, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Other applicants receive recognition. Recipients are as follows:
