On April 30th, more than 200 leaders in business, academia and local government gathered for a panel discussion among national experts in workplace health promotion moderated by Senator Amy Klobuchar. Hosted by the Alliance for a Healthier Minnesota at Target’s Minneapolis headquarters, the event highlighted HealthLead™ accreditation – the emerging standard in workplace health promotion – and Target’s award-winning culture of well-being.
The investment in employee well-being is a key strategy for Target and plays an integral role in its workplace culture and practices for team members in stores, distribution centers, headquarters and other locations. These initiatives led Target to become an alpha-test worksite in the development of HealthLead™ and earn a Silver accreditation in 2011.
“Target has a longstanding commitment to building strong, healthy, safe communities, and we believe that this commitment starts with our own team,” said Jodee Kozlak, executive vice president, Human Resources, Target. “We foster a healthy workplace and encourage Target team members to be their personal best because we know healthy team members are better able to assist our guests and contribute more actively to their communities.”
