Menomonee Falls-based Bradley Corp. received the Gold-level Well Workplace Award from the Wellness Council of America and its local affiliate Wellness Council of Wisconsin. The award recognizes an organization for its commitment to the health and well-being of their employees.
Bradley Corp., a manufacturer of commercial plumbing fixtures and equipment, has launched a number of wellness initiatives over the past three years, such as offering special discounts on exercise classes and wearable fitness tracker technologies, as well as providing reductions in health insurance premiums for improvement in physical fitness.
Bradley also added a part-time on-site health coach to help guide people to more healthy habits, and it offers fruit and other healthy snacks at its facilities.
“Many of our employees embraced these wellness initiatives right off the bat,” said Mike Sipek, chief executive officer of Bradley Corp. “What matters most is they were able to set meaningful and successful health goals for themselves. I believe our employees are healthier, happier and more engaged in their work and our company because of these efforts.”
Added Jessica Raddemann, Wellness Council of Wisconsin’s executive director, “Bradley worked hard to successfully meet the rigorous standards set by the Well Workplace process. It is our pleasure to recognize them as the newest Wisconsin employer to achieve Well Workplace status.”
