For the second year in a row, Novant Health has been recognized as one of the 2016 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America, a national awards program that honors the “best of the best” in workplace wellness.
“We’re honored that Novant Health is ranked 82 out of 100 in the 2016 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America,” said Janet Smith-Hill, executive vice president and chief human resources officer for Novant Health. “Our comprehensive wellness program and dedication toward improving the health of our team members has positioned us as a top employer in the nation.”
More than 5,000 organizations completed the Healthiest Employer Strategic Wellness Assessment in order to be considered for the Healthiest 100 Award. The Healthiest 100 Award measures employers across six key values: Vision, Culture and Engagement, Learning, Expertise, Metrics and Technology.
“Year after year, we see strong growth and continued investment in worksite wellness programs,” noted Rod Reasen, CEO of Springbuk, the scoring engine behind the national Healthiest Employer® Awards Program. “These 100 organizations are the best of the best. Their efforts are improving the health of their workforce and community.”
Novant Health offers team members a variety of wellness programs, resources and incentives, including healthier cafes, wellness challenges, webinars and open access to primary care providers within the same day, if necessary. Novant Health also has enhanced its incentive program to expand preventive screening options, increase award amounts for meeting biometric targets and give rewards for using wearable device technology to track activity and nutrition. As a result, in 2015, Novant Health team members earned $10.3 million for their health care needs through the organization’s wellness incentive program, MotivateMe.
“Today, building a culture of wellness means that employers have to focus on all aspects of health, including physical, mental, spiritual and even financial health. At Novant Health we offer traditional benefit plans but also innovative benefits to help recruit and maintain a healthy workforce,” said Smith-Hill. “It’s about delivering an experience that brings value to team members. We’re dedicated to enhancing our wellness culture across our system.”
