The results of the American Heart Association 2019 Workplace Health Achievement Index were recently announced and Associated Bank achieved gold level recognition for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace.
Associated was recognized for its comprehensive well-being program, which encourages colleagues to lead healthy lifestyles through strategic programming, activities, incentives and support from senior leadership.
The American Heart Association created the Index with its CEO Roundtable, a leadership collaborative of more than 40 CEOs from some of America’s largest companies who are committed to applying evidence-based approaches to improve their employees’ overall health. The Index uses science-based best practices to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of their workplace health programs. Studies show that worksites with a culture of health with comprehensive, evidence-based policies and programs, and senior leadership support are more likely to have engaged employees and a healthier, more productive workforce.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the American Heart Association,” said Arthur Valentine, Well-being Program manager, Associated Bank. “We are able to support our Well-being Program’s mission of improving the health and happiness of our colleagues through the resources and tools provided by AHA.”
The American Heart Association’s Workplace Health Solutions offers a suite of evidence-based tools to help optimize current employee health programs. These tools leverage the science behind the Index while improving consumer engagement and promoting healthier behaviors.
