Two national organizations have given Humana top honors for the company’s work to promote and advance the well-being of its associates.
Humana recently received the American Heart Association’s Fit Friendly Worksite Platinum award for the second year in a row. The award is given to employers that, according to the AHA, “go above and beyond when it comes to their employees’ health” by providing walking and other fitness opportunities as well as healthy-eating options and creating a “culture of wellness.” The platinum distinction is the highest–level award of this type given by the AHA.
“It’s critical for companies to offer employees a wide variety of healthy lifestyle options,” said Ashley Mason, Heart Walk Director for the American Heart Association. “We are pleased to recognize Humana for its dedication to helping employees lead healthy and active lives.”
Humana also recently won the prestigious Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles (BEHL) – Platinum award from the National Business Group on Health. Winning the BEHL’s top prize means that Humana’s associate well-being initiatives are considered examples of best practices and worthy of emulation by other top employers. The National Business Group on Health works to promote workplace wellness as a way to fight rising health care costs and improve economic productivity.
“At Humana, our pursuit of well-being is much more than an initiative; it is our dream for the customers we serve, as well as for ourselves,” said Human Resources Vice President Tim State. “Every day, teammates across our company are working toward their personal health and well-being goals, and inspiring each other throughout the journey. Our energy and momentum are becoming increasingly visible to the outside world, as shown by this recognition. We can all take pride in these signs that we’re on the right path to bringing our dream to life.”
