CINCINNATI — Standard Textile has been named one of the 2014 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America by Healthiest Employers, an employee health analytics, best practices and benchmark data research company.
Standard Textile’s corporate wellness program was recognized as a result of a year-long, highly selective assessment process, the company says.
“We want our associates and their families to achieve the highest possible quality of life,” says Gary Heiman, president and CEO of Standard Textile. “Helping others succeed is at the core of everything we do. The recognition by Healthiest Employers is well deserved. We’ve designed a comprehensive wellness program that helps our associates achieve their personal health goals, and it’s rewarding to see the success they’ve experienced.”
Components and benefits of Standard Textile’s wellness program include comprehensive annual blood screenings for associates and spouses, an on-site fitness center, personalized health and wellness coaching, and nutrition consultations, among other incentives.
Through the company’s health and wellness program, 92% of participants completed a preventative physical examiniation; 89% achieved a non-tobacco status through a blood test; and 84% achieved goals for reducing modifiable risk factors, the company reports.
“The Healthiest 100 stand apart from other employers in three ways: their approach to health cost and risk data; how they incorporate cultural and employee considerations; and their expectations for their employee wellness teams,” says Healthiest Employers’ Strategic Initiatives Director Andrew Lockerbie.
