Unilever Named A Best Employer For Healthy Lifestyles By National Business Group On Health

The National Business Group on Health, a non-profit association of large U.S. employers, today honored Unilever for its commitment and dedication to promoting a healthy workplace and encouraging its workers and families to support and maintain healthy lifestyles.

Unilever was among 66 U.S. employers that received the 2012 Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles award at the Leadership Summit sponsored by the National Business Group on Health’s Institute on Innovation in Workforce Well-being. Unilever received a Platinum Award for its efforts to encourage its 11,000 U.S. employees to take small, positive steps every day to manage their health. This marks the fourth year Unilever has received an award.

“We are honored to be named a Best Employer for Healthy Lifestyles. It is a great external recognition of the commitment we make to our employees every day and the commitment they make back to us and to one another—to take small actions that make a big impact,” said Sumeet Salwan, Unilever’s Vice President, Human Resources .

The sentiment of Unilever’s employee programs echoes its Sustainable Living Plan—an aggressive set of commitments supported by more than 60 smaller goals. The Plan commits Unilever to halve the environmental footprint of its products, enhance the livelihoods of small farmers as it grows its business, and help more than a billion people take action to improve their health and well-being—all by 2020.

Helen Darling, President and CEO of the National Business Group on Health, commented: “We are very pleased to recognize Unilever for its ongoing commitment to providing lifestyle improvement programs that encourage healthy lifestyles for their employees. Unilever and its management team should be proud for their dedication and recognizing the importance of promoting and maintaining a healthy workforce. We congratulate them on receiving this award.”

Winners of the Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles awards were honored in one of two categories: Platinum, for established healthy weight, healthy lifestyles programs with measurable success and documented outcomes; or Gold, for creating cultural and environmental changes that support employees who are committed to long-term behavior changes.
