Healthy Executives Spotlight

Dr Bruce Dart Tulsa Health Department Director

Tulsa Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart

"You need to walk the walk when it comes to employee wellness yourself as well as securing senior leaders within the organization's commitment and participation in it. Wellness is about doing something for your employees, not purely for productivity or financial motives. The return on investment for worksite wellness is not only clear in the literature but also as evidenced in organizations’ decreased health care costs, decreased employee turnover and absenteeism, and worker compensation costs."  Read more about Dr. Bruce Dart's committment to employee wellness


Nancy Gunter Tulsa YMCA VP of Leadership

YMCA of Greater Tulsa VP of Leadership Nancy Gunter

"I think one of the keys to an employee wellness program is not just support, but encouragement from the top of the organization.  The understanding that each person’s health is important, not just to the organization, but also to the people who lead the organization. As the VP of Leadership for the YMCA of Greater Tulsa one of my greatest hopes is that our employees will have a desire to be healthy and that they will know what health looks like."
