Companies submit applications for Healthiest Employers®, and are then scored in six categories relating to creating healthier workplaces: leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communication and marketing, programming and interventions, and reporting and analytics. The assessment is scored Rubric style on a 1-100 scale with each question totaling .25-3 points. A Healthiest Employers Index (HEI) is assigned to each applicant to help rank among companies of similar size.

Companies that have participated in Healthiest Employers over multiple years have improved their scores by 11.4%.

“The Healthiest Employers of Indiana Awards acknowledge the many factors that contribute to a healthy workplace,” said First Person CEO Bryan Brenner. “The definition of a healthy workplace has evolved over the years, and this award celebrates those employers who embrace the expanded definition.”

Founded in 2009 in Indianapolis, Healthiest Employers® has recognized and celebrated people-first companies that use innovative strategies to improve the health of their employees. Since the program expanded nationally, more than 10,000 employers have participated across the country, representing more than 60 million employee lives.

“The health of workplaces greatly influence the health of communities,” said SIHO President and CEO John Sadtler. “As such, we feel that co-sponsoring the Healthiest Employers of Indiana Awards goes well beyond simply honoring employers. It helps to promote the well-being of all Hoosiers.”

The national awards program has fostered a healthier, more productive employer community by rewarding organizations that take steps toward raising health awareness and serving as a resource for companies seeking to improve their health initiatives.
