Studies show that more than 50 percent of health care costs are the result of individual behavior. Prevention of chronic conditions can only be improved through education and a commitment to lifestyle change, said Amy Powell, Wellness Coordinator at JKJ.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
For the third year in a row, Johnson Kendall & Johnson, a leading insurance brokerage headquartered in Newtown, PA, has been recognized as one of Philadelphia’s Healthiest Employers. Awarded yearly by the Philadelphia Business Journal, the designation recognizes employers with an outstanding commitment to employee health and wellness.
The recognition is a testament to JKJ's trailblazing commitment to and experience in implementing successful wellness programs which many of the firm’s clients have adopted to improve their own employees health and company morale resulting in improved costs of benefits programs. Two of JKJ’s benefits clients who work with the JKJ wellness coordinators were also nominated for the award this year.
“Studies show that more than 50 percent of health care costs are the result of individual behavior. Prevention of chronic conditions can only be improved through education and a commitment to lifestyle change,” said Amy Powell, Wellness Coordinator at JKJ. “Healthier behaviors translate into fewer health issues within the workforce, which, in turn, lowers health care costs. Our Health Matters program is a service designed to help companies develop overall wellness strategies to provide employees solutions for a healthier lifestyle.”
JKJ along with other winners will be recognized on Thursday, May 30th at the Healthiest Employers Awards breakfast being held at The Racquet Club of Philadelphia, 215 S. 16th Street, Philadelphia, PA from 7:15 am – 10:00 am. The keynote speaker for the event will be Dr. Gary W. Dorshimer, team internist for the Philadelphia Eagles and head team physician for the Philadelphia Flyers.
