TOPS MARKETS RECEIVES WESTERN NEW YORK’S HEALTHIEST EMPLOYERS AWARD
WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in New York, northern Pennsylvania, western Vermont, and north central Massachusetts, was recently honored with the 2017 Western New York's Healthiest Employers® Award in the Extra Large (1,000 Plus) Business Category.

Key wellness efforts led by Gail Marchese, manager, benefits and wellness for Tops Friendly Markets and the Human Resource team at TOPS, encourage employees to engage in a wide variety of programs in order to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle. As the leading grocer in western NY, TOPS believes that by providing healthy food options in its stores to associates and customers, it's also helping to build a stronger and healthier workforce and community. In addition to promoting healthy eating, associates are also encouraged to live well by staying active. The Tops Annual Well Weight Loss Challenge, Walking to Tops Program, and the company’s annual participation in the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge are just a few examples. These programs, which began in 2010, were established to empower associates and their family members to be educated and engaged in their health and well-being.

“At TOPS we take great pride in ensuring a healthy working environment for all of our employees. We encourage involvement in company-wide fitness challenges, health screenings, and provide numerous resources for our associates so that they can actively take charge of their health and well-being,” said Gail Marchese, manager, benefits and wellness for Tops Friendly Markets.

The Western New York’s Healthiest Employers Award honors companies annually that are committed to a healthy workplace through corporate wellness.
