For the sixth year, CAP’s wellness program was recognized by The Phoenix Business Journal as a “Valley’s Healthiest Employer 2024.”

Wellness Administrator Michelle Rohan is dedicated to achieving the goals of CAP’s comprehensive wellness program: improving employees’ individual health and helping control medical and health-related costs for both employees and the organization.

“Having a healthy workforce is essential to achieving our mission,” said Rohan. “And, I have the opportunity to help achieve that by working with people one-on-one, educating them with fundamental wellness knowledge and helping them apply it in all aspects of their life,” said Rohan.

Rohan uses a holistic approach and focuses on seven areas of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, social and occupational wellness. She then creates wellness opportunities that highlight those through weekly trail walks, educational programs, one-on-one consultations, wellness challenges, health screenings, yoga classes, group fitness activities and more.

Most recently, Rohan created a company-wide stretching video that introduced employees to dynamic and static stretches and how to implement them into their workday to reduce injuries and physical impacts of their job.

“At CAP, we focus on safety and health because our employees are the top priority,” said General Manager Brenda Burman. “The work they do to bring water to 6 million Arizonans is vital and we are proud that our approach to health and wellness is recognized outside of our organization.”

The award application process included evaluation in six areas of worksite wellness, including culture & leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, marketing and communication, programming and interventions, and reporting and analytics.

Editor’s note: Healthiest Employers is an awards program that recognizes people-first organizations taking a more proactive approach to employee health. Their goal is to be a resource for organizations focused on improving their employees’ health, creating a community invested in their populations’ health and wellbeing.
