LEWISTON — FISC Solutions of Lewiston, a third-party, back-office solutions provider, was recently presented with the Healthy Androscoggin Work Healthy Award for the third year in a row. The Androscoggin County Chamber of Commerce presented the award.
The program recognizes businesses and organizations in Androscoggin County that have placed a high priority on promoting good health for their employees. The main focus areas include: working tobacco-free, encouraging physical activity and promoting healthy eating. In addition to recognition in these areas, special distinction awards for those employers that have earned recognition across all three categories are given.
FISC Solutions received the Bronze level award for meeting requirements across all three categories.
The program encourages business support for a healthy lifestyle not only of the employee, but also the business. Advocates cite several benefits of a healthier work force including: reduced absenteeism, reduced disability costs, reduced health care cost, improved productivity and ultimately, money saved.
