Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) March 19, 2014

Protection 1, the largest full service business and home security company in the U.S., today announced it has been recognized as a finalist by the Wichita Business Journal for its Healthiest Employer award program. Protection 1’s company-wide wellness initiative, ‘Every 1 Counts’, was put in place two years ago and has been successful in creating a strong company culture and focus around life balance. The wellness program institutes regular challenges, offering prizes and recognition for participants.

Most recently the company held a 250,000 step challenge where employees worked together to walk 250,000 steps each. Led by senior management, more than 60 percent of Protection 1 employees in Wichita took part in the challenge.

“We have created a culture and an environment that values and supports employee wellness,” said Jamie Haenggi, Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer for Protection 1. “We know that achieving a balanced lifestyle benefits both our employees and our organization.
Employees are able to achieve their personal goals and are better equipped to help deliver a differentiated experience for our customers. We believe the Every 1 Counts program represents an important advantage for the company and our employees and we are pleased to have the program recognized by the Wichita Business Journal.”

Five members of the Protection 1 ‘Every 1 Counts’ team represented the company at an awards luncheon held at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita earlier this month. Representatives were chosen based on the leadership and dedication demonstrated in the program. The representatives were Lindsay Brokschmidt, Court Dyke, Tracy Gerety, Ryan Lewis and Angie Muci.
