The City of DeSoto is committed to providing physical activity and wellness opportunities for our employees. We have been recognized as a 2017 Bronze Level Recipient of the American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly Worksites Recognition program.

What is a fit-friendly worksite?
The Fit-Friendly Worksites program is a catalyst for positive change. Worksites throughout the nation can be part of the initiative by making the health and wellness of their employees a priority. The City of DeSoto was recognized as a Gold Level Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association’s My Heart. My Life. initiative for:
  • Offering employees physical activity support.
  • Providing/increasing healthy eating options at the worksite.
  • Promoting a wellness culture.
  • Implementing at least nine criteria as outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical activity, nutrition and culture.
