Poughkeepsie, NY – July 8, 2014
Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union has been re-accredited as a CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ employer for 2014 by the CEO Roundtable on Cancer. HVFCU has “continued to meet each requirement of this workplace wellness program,” said Dr. Martin J. Murphy Chief Executive Officer of the CEO Roundtable on Cancer.
HVFCU first achieved the CEO Cancer Gold Standard accreditation in 2012. The program was recently enhanced to place more emphasis on prevention, recognizing that there are numerous things that an employer can do to lower the risk of a cancer diagnosis. HVFCU provides programs that enable employees to maintain a healthy lifestyle, to be screened appropriately for certain cancers, and to access state-of-the-science cancer treatment.
“We believe a healthy workforce is a more productive workforce and better for our community overall,” said Diane Allenbaugh, HVFCU’s Vice President of Human Resources and Organizational Development. “From our wellness programs that encourage regular exercise and attention to diet, to our robust health insurance programs that include incentives for regular screenings, HVFCU takes an active role to help staff achieve their best physically.”
