Mayor’s Health and Fitness Council (MHFC)
The MHFC Partner Certification Program is a workplace wellness recognition program for Austin-based organizations of all types and sizes. It was created by the Mayor’s Health & Fitness Council in 2007 in an effort to inspire nutrition, physical activity, tobacco-free living and mother-friendly policies in workplaces.
As an extension of the Mayor’s Health and Fitness Council (MHFC) Partnership Certification Program, the Mayor’s Healthiest Workplaces Awards recognize Austin/Travis County’s top employers that have fostered a work environment that encourages health and wellness.
By becoming a mother-friendly workplace, you can get recognized through the Texas Department of State Health Services Designation Program.
