  • Sacramento, CA (1888PressRelease) May 11, 2013 - The Healthiest Employers program is a privately-held technology and data research company based out of Indianapolis that focuses on corporate wellness through the collection of data and analysis. The program is the largest of its kind, with representation of over 5,000,000 employees worldwide, covering 40 major metropolitan markets and 35 of the Fortune 100 companies.

    The Healthiest Employer awards program provides recognition to companies that are dedicated in creating a healthy working environment for their employees. To determine the winners, local companies were surveyed, analyzed, and scored using an online assessment tool to measure each company through six components. The components are: culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communication and marketing, programming and interventions, and reporting and analysis.

    "Wellness is a central element of our employee benefits program here at benefitsCONNECT®," said CEO, Troy R. Underwood. "Healthy employees are happy and productive employees, and providing a higher level of engagement and service to our customers and partners each and every day."

    benefitsCONNECT® maintains its position on wellness and healthy lifestyle as an important aspect of the company culture. Employees participate in various wellness activities such as local charity bicycle rides, walks, and runs to increase teamwork and productivity. In February, two employees from benefitsCONNECT® successfully reached the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

    "We want our employees to be healthy, so we provide them with the opportunity to have company-subsidized gym memberships, an office kitchen stocked with healthy snacks, access to a sports masseuse, an on-site gym, and long-lunch flexibility that enables employees to get a solid workout in during the day," said Underwood. "The vast majority of our workforce actively participates in most, if not all, of these wellness offerings, and the results are reflected in our team's high productivity and low absenteeism."
