Beacon Health System has been recognized as a 2016 Healthiest 100 Workplace in America®, an awards program presented by Indianapolis-based Springbuk Analytics. The health system was ranked 34th among companies nationwide that made the list.
The top 100 employers were recognized this week at the Corporate Wellness Conference in Washington D.C. The winning organizations are honored for their commitment to employee health and exceptional corporate wellness programming. More than 5,000 employers applied for the award nationally.
Beacon and other award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: vision, culture/engagement, learning, expertise, metrics and technology. Applicants were evaluated with the proprietary Healthiest Employer Index, a 1-100 metric for wellness programming. These organizations have achieved lasting success through a wide array of employee wellness initiatives and corporate wellness programs.
“We are proud that our associates not only focus on delivering high-quality service and care to our patients, but they have also taken steps to live healthy lifestyles,” said Steven Eller, Beacon’s chief human resource officer. “We appreciate our associates’ efforts that have allowed us to be recognized as a top employer for health and wellness. We want to be a career destination and we want to create the healthiest workforce.”
Year after year, the program sees strong growth and continued investment in worksite wellness programs, said Rod Reasen, chief executive officer of Springbuk, the scoring engine behind the national Healthiest Employer Awards Program.
“These 100 organizations are the best of the best,” Reasen said. “Their efforts are improving the health of their workforce and community.”
