“This recognition reinforces our commitment to encourage our employees to be healthy by providing a workplace that supports a variety of health-minded activities,” said Silvia Dimma, MSUFCU’s chief human resources officer. “Delivering superior service to our members can best be accomplished by a strong and healthy workforce, so we will continue to make wellness a priority for employees.”

MSUFCU has been selected for this recognition based on its culture of wellness and efforts in employee wellness to make the organization and community a healthier place to live and work.
