MNMW Is now Blue Zones Project Approved
Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Company, P.A. in Naples is now a Blue Zones Project approved worksite. MNMW joins more than 700 other organizations participating with Blue Zones Project – Southwest Florida, a community-by-community, well-being improvement initiative designed to support longer, better lives through sustainable changes to environment, policy, and social networks. Principles are based on lifestyles in Blue Zones® areas, which are pockets of the world where people live longer with less chronic disease and higher quality of life.
“Our team at MNMW is one large family, and we all care and support each other both professional and personally,” said Karen Mosteller, CPA, CHBC, Partner at MNMW. “Many of the guidelines to become a Blue Zones Project organization were already deeply ingrained in our culture and day-to-day operations. MNMW has always tried to help team members with a healthy lifestyle and a balance in their work and personal lives. It is encouraging to see so many companies building cultures that focus on the health and well-being of their team, which impacts our community in the end.”
One of the ways that MNMW earned Blue Zones Project Approval was through their corporate citizenship/corporate social responsibility programs. The firm is determined to play its part in transforming well-being in Southwest Florida – as a United Way Pacesetter organization and working with a myriad of philanthropic organizations in the community: volunteering, fund raising, and hosting donation and blood drives as part of its mission.
Brought to Southwest Florida by NCH Healthcare System, in collaboration with Sharecare®, Inc., Blue Zones Project is a vital part of Southwest Florida’s well-being improvement initiative that encourages changes in the community that lead to healthier options.
