Each year at the Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce dinner, MidMichigan Health Foundation’s Business Relations Committee presents the Health Leadership Award to a local business or organization. This award recognizes the recipient for promoting positive lifestyle choices and offering innovative health programs to its employees. This year, Clark Construction Company received the award.

“During the last year, COVID-19 has affected individuals as well as businesses,” said Ann Diamond, director of fund development, MidMichigan Health Foundation. “Promoting and maintaining a healthy work environment, while adhering to the new COVID business rules and regulations, is now more important than ever. Clark Construction Company was selected as this year’s Health Leadership Award recipient because they excelled at providing personal support to their employees during these unprecedented times.”

Clark Construction Company offers its employees a variety of health and wellness opportunities, even increasing their offerings during the past year. In addition to flu shots, first aid and CPR training, health club memberships and smoking cessation and weight loss programs, to name a few, the company also has a corporate Headspace account, encourages daily steps and activity through MoveSpring challenges and offers virtual small group and social events. Clark Construction Company has also revised safety policies and has regular check-ins among team members.

“Clark Construction Company’s approach to health, in and out of the workplace, is certainly supported by MidMichigan Health Foundation, and we are pleased to be able to acknowledge them for their exceptional initiatives,” said Diamond.

This year marked the 26th year of presenting the Health Leadership Award to a deserving organization. MidMichigan Health Foundation’s Business Relations Committee is chaired by Nancy Montie, who presented the award with Diamond.
