The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Healthy KC Initiative awarded 132 local businesses and organizations with a 2020 Healthy KC Workplace Wellness Certificate for their measures to keep employees healthy.

The Chamber recognizes businesses with Workplace Wellness Certification every two years, but this year’s recipients had the COVID-19 pandemic and its resulting challenges to overcome. The companies to receive the 2020 Healthy KC Workplace Wellness Certificate were chosen with remote workforce challenges, increased demand for mental health resources, and the need for an inclusive and equitable environment in mind.

Certifications range in levels from Honorable Mention to Platinum, based on five pillars of health. The pillars include healthy eating, active living, tobacco cessation, work-life integration, and design-built environment. The breakdown for recipients of each level put 67 businesses at Platinum, 35 at Gold, 24 at Silver, and 6 at Bronze. The Platinum category winners at the top are as follows:
