The Healthy Workplace Employer Recognition Program was established to highlight the efforts of employers who understand the competitive advantage of a healthy workforce and who have implemented a diverse range of programs to promote a healthy workplace and assist their employees to live healthier lives.
“Not to state the obvious, but changing behaviors is hard,” said Matthew Fair, vice president, Key Insurance & Benefits Services and co-chair of The Business Council’s Wellness Roundtable. “Through creative programming, employee feedback and health assessment measures, our 2018 Healthy Workplace honorees are succeeding in improving the health and productivity of their employees while reducing overall health care costs.”
Anthony Aguanno, senior account executive, UnitedHealthcare and co-chair of The Business Council’s Wellness Roundtable, said, “Employers continue to make great progress on assuring a healthy workplace for their employees. Encouraging physical activity, promoting healthy eating choices and managing chronic illness are the cornerstones of success for this year’s honorees. Of interest to our panel of reviewers this year was the number of programs that broadened the definition of wellness to include financial and emotional health.”
