Joy Global is a 2016 recipient of the Gold Well Workplace Award from the Wellness Council of America.

The Well Workplace Awards recognise the nation’s leaders in corporate health by monitoring their adherence to a rigorous set of criteria outlined in WELCOA’s seven benchmarks to a result-oriented Well Workplace. This is the third time Joy Global has been included on the list of “America’s Healthiest Companies” since the programme was implemented in 1991.

Joy Global earned a Gold award by successfully building comprehensive worksite wellness initiatives and demonstrating concrete results. The company’s efforts to support employees’ health include: onsite biometric screenings and flu shots, a tobacco cessation programme, and physical activity and weight loss programmes.

“Our employees are a valued and essential part of our commitment to leading the mining industry in service and performance,” said Johan Maritz, Executive Vice President – Human Resources at Joy Global. “We are honoured to be recognised for efforts that we feel are essential to supporting our employees’ wellbeing.”
