Covington, LA (PRWEB) November 23, 2011
Gilsbar, one of the nation’s fastest growing, privately-held health and benefit management organizations, has received CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ accreditation, recognizing the company’s commitment to reducing cancer risk by promoting healthy lifestyle choices, encouraging early detection through cancer screenings, and ensuring access to quality treatment for their own employees and their covered family members.
The CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ calls for companies to evaluate their health benefits and corporate culture and take extensive, concrete actions in five key areas of health and wellness to fight cancer in the workplace. To earn this recognition, Gilsbar established programs for its employees to help reduce cancer risk by discouraging tobacco use, encouraging physical activity, promoting healthy diet and nutrition, detecting cancer at its earliest stages, and providing access to quality care.
The CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ was created by the CEO Roundtable on Cancer, a nonprofit organization of cancer-fighting CEOs who collaborate with the National Cancer Institute, many of its designated cancer centers, and leading health non-profit organizations and professionals. Due to the vision and leadership of employers like Gilsbar, nearly 2.7 million employees and family members are benefiting from a unified commitment to employees’ well-being.
This is one of several honors Gilsbar holds for its corporate dedication to healthy employees. Other honors include WELCOA Gold Well Workplace, and American Heart Association’s FIT Friendly Company Platinum Achievement. Gilsbar incorporates best practices learned from its own worksite wellness program into the programs it customizes for its national client base, using its proprietary Priority 7 corporate wellness methodology.
