We are proud to announce the American Heart Association has added Maiker Housing Partners to their 2020 Workplace Health Achievement Index at the Bronze Level. The American Heart Association’s Workplace Health Achievement Index measures the extent to which Maiker has implemented best practices for employers to use to build a culture of health for their employees in the workplace. Companies recognized at the Bronze Level have achieved an Index score of 86 – 129 out of a maximum 217 points.
At Maiker, we are passionate about safety and wellness and have developed organizational policies to create an environment that promotes health. Our employee handbook highlights our policies on maintaining a drug and alcohol free workplace, smoking, occupational health and safety, workplace bullying and mental wellbeing. We also offer a robust employee assistance program as well as health and life insurance. Moreover, Maiker is a certified Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace, offering breastfeeding mothers a quiet room and three breast pumps that can be checked out for usage at Maiker’s 15 locations or at the user’s home.
It is also important to us that we keep everyone on our team connected by sending out monthly internal newsletters, providing timely updates if inclement weather is in the forecast and maintaining regular communication from leadership to all employees. Lastly, we have numerous programs that enable our employees and communities to thrive, including frequent wellness activities to ensure strong mental and physical health. We are passionate about keeping our people safe and will continue to further promote health and support each other in any way possible.
We are extremely humbled to receive this honor as we take pride in the work we do and the communities we help. As COVID-19 has changed a lot in all of our lives, we have stayed true to our mission and will continue to work hard to maintain the safety, health and well-being of our employees and workplace. We’d like to thank the American Heart Association for recognizing our commitment to creating a space where everyone belongs and feels safe while also helping Maiker communities reach their full potential.
