EmblemHealth Earns Silver Award in Healthyroads "Fit Company" Employer Wellness Award
EmblemHealth has received the silver award in the fourth annual Healthyroads Fit Company Awards program. Awarded to EmblemHealth after judging companies nationwide, the program recognizes our exceptional wellness programs and benefits that help improve the health and fitness of employees.
myHealth PATH is centered on the company’s core promise to help employees get well, stay healthy and live better. It awards employees up to $750 for making healthy choices, changes and progress. In 2013, EmblemHealth awarded almost $300,000 to 569 employees who earned points and met biometric goals.
Leading by Example
Senior leaders at EmblemHealth worked hard to inspire and encourage more than 50 percent of our 4,000 employees to participate in at least one wellness offering, often by participating themselves. Fun activities and tools include:
- On-site leader-led walks
- Group exercise classes
- Neighborhood walking maps
- Subsidies and discounts for gym memberships
- Training programs for charitable runs
"We're honored to be recognized nationally for our commitment to employee health," said Karen Smith-Hagman, Vice President, Medical Management. "The greater reward, though, is the renewed commitment by our employees to keep themselves and their community healthier. We’re very inspired by the changes we've seen."
