HVFCU Earns CEO Cancer Gold Standard Re-Accreditation
Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union has earned CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ re-accreditation for maintaining a strong commitment to the health of its employees and satisfying the latest, comprehensive requirements of the Gold Standard.
The CEO Roundtable on Cancer, a nonprofit organization of health-minded CEOs, developed and administers the Gold Standard, an employee wellness framework based on taking concrete actions in five key areas to address cancer in the workplace. Today, more than four and a half million employees and family members are benefiting from the vision and leadership of nearly 200 private, non-profit, and government employers who have chosen to become Gold Standard accredited. The listing of accredited employers includes a wide range of occupational categories, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and a number of NCI-designated cancer centers.
“Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union is dedicated to providing our employees with the tools they need to be healthy,” stated Mary D. Madden, President & CEO.” The Gold Standard Program has been very successful in helping our employees improve their overall wellness.”
To earn and maintain CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ accreditation, an employer meets specific requirements in corporate culture and health benefits: establish policies and programs to reduce cancer risk by prohibiting tobacco use and supporting tobacco cessation efforts; promote physical activity, healthy nutrition and weight management; provide health insurance options that include detecting cancer at its earliest stages, access to quality care, and participation in clinical trials; promote employee awareness of these initiatives; and support the needs of cancer survivors in the workplace.
