UPM Raflatac demonstrates service and exceptional leadership because they care about their employees and their community as well as the global community, which is why they are the winner of this year’s Good Health Good Business award.
This award recognizes a business that demonstrates service and exceptional leadership which have resulted in improving the health of the Asheville area community. Award winners serve as an example for others in the community by actively supporting the health and wellness of their employees and the community at large through initiatives that address poverty, nutrition or quality of life.
UPM Raflatac, a global leader in the manufacture of pressure sensitive label materials, shows their concern and care for their community in a multitude of ways.
The company’s factory in Mills River was the first manufacturing facility in North Carolina whose electrical supply is generated entirely by renewable sources through Duke Energy’s NC Renewable Energy Program, thus improving the health of the Asheville area community.
Additionally, the company serves as an example for others in the community by actively supporting the health and wellness of their employees. UPM Raflatac takes good care of their employees by providing them with health and wellness programs that address their health needs by sponsoring teams for the Asheville Chamber Challenge 5K and offering biometric screenings that measure employees’ blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose and BMI that can help employees uncover and manage their health issues. The company offers further health access to their employees by providing an onsite Pardee health clinic where they can see a healthcare provider free-of-charge to further maintain and manage their health.
UPM Raflatac also demonstrates attention for the community at large through initiatives like supporting a cleaner French Broad River with a donation to MountainTrue.
Time and again, UPM Raflatac has shown that their organization cares for the quality of life of their employees and for their Western Carolina community.
