February 19, 2013

For the second time in as many years, BioTek Instruments received the Worksite Wellness Silver Level Award from the Vermont Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. This award, presented by Governor Peter Shumlin, honors Vermont companies with wellness programs that contribute to decreased absenteeism, and increased employee health and job retention.

"Worksites that promote healthy lifestyles and physical activity contribute to the overall health and wellness of all Vermonters, and they are one of the key reasons we are routinely rated the nation’s healthiest state," said Vermont Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD.

Kathy Gendron, BioTek's Vice President, Human Resources added, "Whether it's participating in BioTek’s BioFit Wellness Program, biking to work, or even hiking a mountain, our employees find ways to stay healthy. It’s a natural part of our culture as BioTekkers and Vermonters."

In 2011, BioTek received the North American New Product Innovation Award for Workflow Solutions in Life Sciences from Frost & Sullivan.
