We are honored to achieve Gold Level status with the AHA’s Index, and we are equally pleased to see several of our clients gaining recognition as well.

The results of the American Heart Association 2019 Workplace Health Achievement Index have been announced, and CHC Wellbeing achieved Gold Level recognition for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace. Based in Chicago, CHC works nationally to help individuals and organizations go beyond wellness to true potential.    

The American Heart Association created the Index with its CEO Roundtable, a leadership collaborative of more than 40 CEOs from some of America’s largest companies who are committed to applying evidence-based approaches to improve their employees’ overall health. The Index uses science-based best practices to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of their workplace health programs. Studies show that worksites with a culture of health with comprehensive, evidence-based policies and programs, and senior leadership support are more likely to have engaged employees and a healthier, more productive workforce.

A unique feature of the Index is that it calculates an average heart health score for employees of participating companies that securely submit aggregate health data. Companies receive benchmarking reports, which allow them to identify potential areas of improvement so that they can advance their annual performance and recognition.

CHC also assisted several clients with the submission process as well. In total, five CHC clients were recognized by the Index, including:

Gold Level

  • City of Jefferson

Silver Level

  • Chicago Cubs
  • Oak Lawn Park District

Bronze Level

  • American College of Healthcare Executives
  • Old Second National Bank

“We are honored to achieve Gold Level status with the AHA’s Index, and we are equally pleased to see several of our clients gaining recognition as well,” said Ramki Ramanarayanan, CEO with CHC Wellbeing. “Our daily business is centered on helping individuals thrive at work and at home. This is true for our own colleagues, as well as our clients. To see our efforts validated by such a prestigious and rigorous initiative is both exciting and humbling for our organization.”
