Blue Cross seeks worksite-award applicants

Posted 2/17/14

PROVIDENCE – Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island announced that the call for applications for the 20th annual Worksite Health Awards, which recognize Rhode Island companies with successful workplace wellness programs, is open through Friday, Feb. 28.

In partnership with the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce, BCBSRI invites Rhode Island businesses to apply for a Worksite Health Award. All Rhode Island companies are eligible, including small (100 or fewer employees) and large businesses (more than 100 employees), and applicants must demonstrate exceptional health and wellness programs and health-oriented workplace policies. Winning companies will be honored at a ceremony on May 28 and profiled in a special section of Rhode Island Monthly magazine.

“As an insurer and as one of Rhode Island’s largest employers ourselves, BCBSRI understands the real value in creating healthier workplaces,” said Michael Hudson, Chief Financial Officer for BCBSRI. “A commitment to eating well, exercise and work life balance doesn’t just make employees happier and healthier, it is good overall business sense and helps the state drive down healthcare costs.”

“Employees are one of a company’s most valuable assets and studies have shown that keeping them healthy can have numerous benefits to business – including increases in productivity,” said Laurie White, president of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce. “The Worksite Health Awards are an opportunity for employers to come together to celebrate and learn from best practices while showcasing the advances being made every day to improve the health and wellbeing of Rhode Islanders at work.”

In 2013, 75 local companies received Worksite Health Awards. In the past, the most impactful worksite offerings have included smoking cessation programming, flu immunization clinics, blood pressure screenings and walking programs.

Interested businesses can find more detail and apply online at BCBSRI.com.
