Cleveland, OH -- The Healthy Business Council of Ohio (HBCO) has recognized The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) as a Gold Level winner for healthy worksite practices in 2023, as part of their Healthy Worksite Recognition Program.

The program annually recognizes Ohio employers that have demonstrated a commitment to their employees’ wellbeing by providing comprehensive worksite health promotion and wellness programs. This designation program acknowledges efforts made to improve overall employee health, enhance productivity, and ensure a healthy work environment.

All applications were reviewed by HBCO and evaluated using objective criteria. Four levels of high achievement were awarded in 2023 -- Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, with GCRTA being recognized by HBCO as a Gold Level winner.

"I’m so proud of our Benefits team and Wellness Committee for always innovating and pushing wellness through various creative and educational events and promotions throughout the year," said GCRTA Deputy General Manager, Human Resources, George F. Fields. "Their collective efforts provided relevant knowledge and information that improved the health literacy of GCRTA employees in making well-informed health related decisions."

HBCO has announced that 91 Ohio employers have been recognized for healthy worksite practices in 2023, and that an awards ceremony for all 2023 winners will be held virtually on February 15, 2024.

GCRTA was formed in 1974 with the mission of providing public transit services to the 59 communities and 1.2 million residents of Cuyahoga County. As the largest public transit agency in the State of Ohio, GCRTA’s service options include bus, BRT, trolley, paratransit and three rail lines. GCRTA makes connections that empower individuals, neighborhoods, and communities to rise.
