UnitedHealthcare Recognizes Employers For Industry-Leading Worksite Wellness Programs

UnitedHealthcare has announced winners of its Well Deserved Award, an annual honor given to employers who have demonstrated a strong commitment to improving their employees’ health and well-being through effective worksite wellness programs.

The use of effective workplace programs may reduce health risks and improve the quality of life for American workers, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Wellness Council of America states that workplace wellness programs are a wise investment to address rising health care costs and improve employee health.

“We are honored to recognize these leaders for implementing innovative and valuable wellness programs, along with their overall passion for helping employees improve their health,” said Carol Calvin, RN, MS, CPQH, national director of UnitedHealthcare Health and Wellness. “We’ve seen increased interest in wellness programs because more employers are recognizing they can support their employees’ desire to improve their health. By doing so, they can create a happier, healthier workforce while reducing costs for employees and the company.”

Among the Well Deserved Award winners is Meredith Corp., based in Des Moines, Iowa. This is the third year that Meredith Corp. has won the Well Deserved Award. In recognition of its long-term commitment to health and wellness, UnitedHealthcare presented the company with a Leadership award to honor the multiyear distinction.
