In our commitment to being a company that everyone wants to work for, we continue to encourage and look for new ways to incorporate health and wellness in our workplace
(PRWEB) October 17, 2016
Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY) is honored to be the recipient of the “Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America Award.” This coveted honor is given only to 100 of the 5,000 U.S. companies that apply for the award each year. This is the third top workplace honor for PHLY in the past month, in addition to the 2016 Best Places to Work in Insurance and 2016 Best Places to Work in PA awards.
On September 26, 2016, before 3,000 attendees from over 100 countries, PHLY was presented with this award during the 8th Annual Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress (EHBC) in Washington, D.C.
“Health and wellness has been an important part of Philadelphia Insurance Companies’ culture since day one,” shared PHLY’s president and CEO Bob O’Leary. “In our commitment to being a company that everyone wants to work for, we continue to encourage and look for new ways to incorporate health and wellness in our workplace.”
PHLY has a state-of-the-art 17,000 square-foot health club in its Bala Cynwyd, PA headquarters, which is free to all employees. Employees in offices across the country are eligible for gym membership reimbursements and an extra 15 minutes at lunch for exercise. In 2015, PHLY implemented a wellness program that encourages employees to prioritize health beyond physical fitness through biometric screenings, stress management, and other initiatives.
“Employers across the country are making remarkable strides in worksite health and we’re excited to partner with the EHBC to highlight their successes at the Annual Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress,” said Phil Daniels, co-founder of the Healthiest Employer Award Program.
To be considered for this award, companies are scored via a 1-100 metric that examines six critical elements of workplace wellness:
- Culture and leadership commitment
- Foundational components
- Annual planning
- Communications and marketing
