WE RECOGNIZE WELLNESS.

The Healthiest Employer Designation recognizes organizations that are committed to creating a healthy workplace. The regional designation utilizes an online assessment to measure wellness programming in six key categories:

LEADERSHIP COMMITMENT

Culture determines the success (or failure) of today’s worksite wellness programs. And, leadership plays a critical role in affecting an organization’s approach to programming.

FOUNDATIONAL COMPONENTS

The foundation of your program will determine its overall, long-term strength. Shallow programs can be built quickly, but have difficulty in producing lasting results.

STRATEGIC PLANNING

Achieving an innovative program begins by developing a mid and long-term strategy. This work will be evidenced in the results of a healthier, more productive workforce.

COMMUNICATION AND MARKETING

With a communications and marketing campaign targeted to your workforce, you can turn lackluster perception and participation into ongoing momentum.

PROGRAMMING AND INTERVENTIONS

Does your program use a carrot or the stick? Effective methods and engagement strategies are often ones that address the self-interest of the employee population.

REPORTING AND ANALYTICS

Healthy employees are more productive and spend less in healthcare. The need for a ROI is common when looking at the dollars spent on a corporate wellness program.

Are you a Healthiest Employer?

SCORING METHODOLOGY

The categories, scoring, and benchmarking were formed with the help of a national, non-biased group of representatives from the academic, medical, wellness and business communities.

The assessment is compromised of over 60 scored questions with a corresponding point value for each answer. These questions contain more than 600 data points for scoring and benchmarking. Upon completion of the assessment, employers are scored with the Healthiest Employer Index (HEI). This benchmark score ranks an organization based on their individual answers.
