Interactive Health today announced the 2013 winners of its annual “Healthiest Companies in America” award. For the seventh year in a row, Interactive Health is honoring organizations from across the United States for their efforts to prioritize employee health and create an ongoing culture of health.
The 68 honorees achieved a low health risk status across their organizations while sustaining high employee participation in their wellness program. The selection process analyzes biometric screening results. Each organization demonstrated improved overall employee health across the following key health indicators: glucose, blood pressure, cholesterol, and tobacco usage.
“It takes courage and commitment to develop a strategic approach to wellness which is what each of our winners demonstrated in 2013. We are proud to honor them with the ‘Healthiest Companies in America’ award,” said Joseph A. O’Brien, Interactive Health President and CEO. “Every one of these organizations has created a culture of health which goes beyond simply helping at-risk employees improve their health. These organizations have found creative ways to make achieving individual and corporate wellness goals fun. Programs include raffle prizes for competing in team exercise and nutrition challenges, discounts for healthy cafeteria food options and themed health fairs. We are thrilled to acknowledge companies committed to creating a culture of health.”
