The Warrenville Park District on Jan. 24, 2014 was recognized as an Exceptional Workplace by the Illinois Park and Recreation Association at the IPRA annual business meeting.
The Exceptional Workplace award is administered by IPRA to recognize agencies that show a commitment to the well being of their employees. Agencies undergo a voluntary evaluation process to demonstrate that they have met guidelines to provide employees with the opportunity for a well-balanced life from the inside out.
The Exceptional Workplace program encompasses the six dimensions of wellness: physical activity, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and environmental.
"The Warrenville Park District is proud to receive the Exceptional Workplace Award," said Warrenville Park District Executive Director Diane Dillow. "This is a great place to play, learn, and explore for our patrons -- and the same applies to our employees. Having healthy employees is paramount to having a healthy agency with higher productivity, lower absenteeism, and happier people."
