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.
