Companies were selected for the honor based on the results of a survey conducted by Healthiest Employers and developed by a committee including representatives from the health care, wellness, academic and business communities.  Winners were celebrated at an awards reception held September 22, 2011, in Bethesda, Md.

In its inaugural year , The Washington Business Journa l selected the top 40 healthiest employers in the Washington Metropolitan Area.  Over 100 companies submitted applications for this coveted award.  GTSI won first place in the size category of 100–499 employees. Scoring by a professional panel was based on survey responses in seven key areas of workplace wellness: culture and leadership, commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communications and marketing, programming and interventions, and reporting and analysis.

"As an organization we are deeply committed to improving the health of our employees, and toward that end we've designed a comprehensive program that makes wellness a big part of our corporate culture," said Bridget Atkinson, GTSI Chief Human Capital Officer.  "We take a holistic approach covering every aspect of our employees' lives – professional, personal and physical, with programs ranging from nutrition, weight management and financial planning to career development. Our cross functional wellness committee, led by Kim Crisp, project specialist in human relations, has done a great job of connecting with and engaging our employees.  This honor recognizes our achievements in creating an environment that fosters healthy choices at work, at home and in the community."
