It makes sense that a company dealing with insurance would be concerned with its employees’ health. And AIPSO, a nonprofit management organization and service provider for the residual insurance market, shows that concern with programs aimed at worker well-being.

Employees have access to an outdoor walking path around the property, and AIPSO has an on-site Weight Watchers at Work program, with employees attending all meetings earning a $50 reimbursement. Those losing at least five pounds are reimbursed an additional $25.

AIPSO also takes part in ShapeUp RI, a statewide exercise and weight-loss challenge. For the past three years, AIPSO, a 2010 Best Places to Work winner, has had several teams in the program.

A few times throughout the year, AIPSO has Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island conduct a lunch-time series for employees, the topic geared around healthy eating and lifestyles.

The company also addresses intellectual well-being, offering reimbursement for employees pursuing job-related courses for undergraduate and graduate programs. The company’s IDEAL Women’s Leadership Network is an employee-resource group with a mission of providing programs addressing leadership-development needs of women in the organization.

Each year, a recognition luncheon is held for workers celebrating milestone anniversaries within the company.

“We have been able to successfully maintain the culture and values of our organization during times of significant change and challenge,” President David Kohlhammer said. “The employees have remained committed to AIPSO and each other.” •
