Greensburg, IN— Fourteen Indiana companies were recognized for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace as part of the 2019 results of the American Heart Association Workplace Health Achievement Index. The American Heart Association, the world’s leading voluntary organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke, created the Index with its CEO Roundtable, a leadership collaborative of more than 40 CEOs from some of America’s largest companies who are committed to applying evidence-based approaches to improve their employees’ overall health.
In southeastern Indiana, recognition in the Workplace Health Achievement Index included:
- Decatur County Memorial Hospital, Greensburg, Bronze
The Workplace Health Achievement Index uses science-based best practices to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of their workplace health programs. A unique feature of the Index is that it calculates an average heart health score for employees of participating companies that securely submit aggregate health data.
More than 900 organizations completed the Index assessment this year and, of those companies, 82% received either Gold, Silver or Bronze recognition. Organizations receive benchmarking reports, which allow them to identify potential areas of improvement so that they can advance their annual performance and recognition.
