Wellness Workdays, a leading provider of corporate wellness programs, announces that six organizations achieved 2018 Best Wellness Employer gold certification: AIM Mutual Insurance, Brown University, Bryant University, Focused Post Acute Care Partners, the Orlando Utilities Commission and Putnam Investments. The Best Wellness Employer program, developed by Wellness Workdays in collaboration with experts from Harvard Medical School, recognizes the significant achievements of employers dedicated to improving employee health and well-being.
"Wellness programs are an increasingly attractive benefit for employees. A certified wellness program can build a stronger organization, help attract and retain top talent, and boost the bottom line," said Debra Wein, founder and CEO of Wellness Workdays. "In addition, the data we compiled and analyzed throughout the submission process is research that is vital to advancing the field of worksite wellness."
The six certified gold organizations met rigorous evaluation standards in the areas of assessment, strategy, implementation and evaluation. Each organization received a report to help them measure their program and identify gaps. Detailed recommendations were provided, which will allow each organization to continue to promote an engaged workforce and a culture of well-being at their organization. Several Best Wellness Employers will be featured at Wellness Workdays' 5th Annual Emerging Trends in Wellness Conference on April 11-12 outside of Boston.
