COVINGTON, La. (PRWEB) November 15, 2018
The results of the American Heart Association 2018 Workplace Health Achievement Index were announced and Gilsbar achieved Gold level recognition for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace.
The Index, created by the American Heart Association in partnership with their CEO Roundtable, uses science-based best practices to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of workplace health programs. More than 1,000 companies completed the Index assessment this year with only the highest performers receiving Gold recognition.
Gilsbar’s employees’ health was compared to the Association’s Workplace Health Achievement Index to measure the effectiveness of our workplace health programs as well as the overall heart health of our employees. The American Heart Association’s Workplace Health Achievement Index assessment is grounded in data-driven science and a quality improvement framework.
Catherine Haun, Gilsbar’s Internal Wellness Coordinator, stated “When someone joins the Gilsbar team, our corporate wellness program is one of the first things they learn about and are encouraged to join. Our wellness team and employee wellness committee work all year long to provide tools, challenges, rewards and opportunities for each person to get involved right where they are.”
Gilsbar is proud of our employees and the work they do to provide exceptional service to our clients, as well as the work they do to stay healthy and grow personally.
