Ironwood Insurance Services has been recognized as a winner of the 2015 Healthiest Employers, an awards program presented by The Atlanta Business Chronicle. Ironwood's internal health and wellness program is equally as impressive as the unique programs the firm develops for its clients.

Select employers from Atlanta were named winners of the awards program held on February 12th 2015. These winning organizations were honored for their commitment to employee health, with exceptional corporate wellness programming.

Award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Culture and Leadership, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analysis. Completed assessments were ranked with the proprietary Healthiest Employer Index, a 1-100 metric for wellness programming. With innovative new programs in place since its award, Ironwood seems to be striving to be the leading example of what a "Well Workplace" looks like in Atlanta.

“As an Employee Benefits Brokerage & Consulting Firm, Ironwood designs and promotes wellness programs for our clients and we continually see the positive results and benefits of these programs. Our Wellness & Communications Consultant, Tricia Brown, creates custom plans for our clients meeting each one's unique needs. After setting corporate wellness goals and objectives with the management team, various strategies are executed which may include health fairs, biometric screenings, training, special events, and employee education. We are privileged to have Tricia in house leading our wellness program and are committed to helping our clients maintain wellness momentum” stated Mark Conner, Managing Partner of Ironwood’s Benefits Advisory Services.

Weekly yoga classes, wellness “lunch and learns”, alternative seating options, health coaching, bio-metric screenings, and the Annual Ironwood Olympics were all a part of the 2014 Ironwood Wellness Routine. The committee even has a mascot who posts healthy tips throughout the office such as “consider taking the stairs”, “keep a daily water log”, "Healthy Grocery Shopping Tips".

Ironwood's internal health and wellness program is equally as impressive as the unique programs the firm develops for its clients. According to Tricia, “Our Ironwood Wellness Motto is “Life Simplified”. The goal each year of our wellness committee is to create programs for our employees that make life just a bit easier and create a healthy and positive environment for all.”

What’s next at Ironwood? New for 2015, the team has launched the RivalHealth live fit program which provides individualized fitness plans for each employee. The company also is sponsoring and has a team competing in the first Annual Trinity Combine this spring.
