Story by: Norton Healthcare on October 8, 2021
Norton Healthcare was named No. 10 on the 2021 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America by Healthiest Employers for its investment in the health and well-being of its employees. In addition, Norton Healthcare was named No. 1 on the 2021 Healthiest Workplace in Kentucky, in the extra-large employer category (more than 10,000 employees).
This award honors organizations that are demonstrating care for their people by investing in health and well-being solutions and initiatives.
“Norton Healthcare is committed to creating and maintaining workforce well-being,” said Allison Ledford, senior director, Prevention & Wellness. “Our commitment continues to be about creating a healthy place to work, supporting healthy choices, cultivating a healthy work-life balance, improving our health and lowering avoidable health care costs.”
The questionnaire, scoring and benchmarking were formed with the help of a national, nonbiased group of representatives from the academic, medical and wellness communities. The metric includes six categories: culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communications and marketing, programming and interventions, and reporting and analytics.
“Healthiest Employers scores hit record highs in the past year, reflecting a deep level of care and empathy by business and benefits leaders who stand out in their support of their employees’ well-being,” said Haley Elmore, Healthiest Employers program coordinator.
Healthiest Employers was founded over a decade ago by Springbuk to drive meaningful investment in employees’ health and well-being and to accelerate companies’ adoption of data-driven approaches to health initiatives and planning employee benefits.
