Terra Bella-based Setton Pistachio — the nation’s second largest pistachio grower and processor and maker of Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites — is searching for the nation’s healthiest work place.

This week, the company announced the launch of a new Wellness at Work Award, which it will give to a company that encourages a healthy work environment and has established wellness and nutrition programs for its employees.

Setton Pistachio’s parent company, Setton Farms, is accepting nominees for the award from all business sectors, large or small, dedicated to providing a health-oriented atmosphere for employees.

Businesses are able to enter by filling out a short entry form on or before March 9. The entry form can be found on the Setton Farms website or on the Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites Facebook page.

Setton Pistachio Farms will then select the three companies that excel in promoting wellness at work. These top contenders will be announced on the Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites Facebook page on March 10.

The public will then have an opportunity to vote for their favorite company between March 11 and March 18.

The winner will be announced on March 21 and recognized by Setton Farms as the nation’s healthiest workplace. In addition, the winning company will also receive a prize pack.

“People spend the majority of their time working, so we feel that incorporating healthy habits while at work is a great way to implement and maintain a healthy lifestyle,” said Setton Pistachio Farms Vice President of Sales Joseph Setton. “We believe that small steps can make a big impact and are excited to bring awareness to incorporating wellness at work.”
