The Healthy Business Council of Ohio Honors TriHealth
November 29, 2022
The Healthy Business Council of Ohio (HBCO) has announced that 96 Ohio employers have been recognized for healthy worksite practices in 2022. All 96 worksites will receive recognition within the state-wide organization’s tiered designation program the Healthy Worksite Award. Among the recipients being honored is TriHealth, the Cincinnati region’s only nationally recognized integrated health system, which received Platinum Distinction, the highest possible recognition.
The Healthy Worksite Award recognizes Ohio employers who demonstrate a commitment to employee wellness through comprehensive worksite health promotion and wellness programs. Applicants are scored on the extent their wellness programs facilitate and encourage employee health, enhance productivity, and ensure a healthy work environment. In addition to TriHealth, HBCO also recognized seven other employers in our community who are assisted by our own Employer Solutions/Corporate Health Division in offering wellbeing services to their employees.
All applications were reviewed and evaluated using objective criteria. Four levels of high achievement were awarded in 2022 —Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, in addition to an entry-level tier of “recognition”. To celebrate the accomplishments of Ohio worksites and their efforts to pivot and adapt during the pandemic, a Pandemic Response Section was included in this year’s extensive award application.
“TriHealth is honored to have received the highest possible recognition from the Healthy Business Council of Ohio,” said TriHealth’s Interim Chief Human Resource Officer Will Groneman. “Our organization has always considered team member and physician well being a staple of getting healthcare right, and we will continue identifying and implementing programs to best serve our employees’ needs.”
"Our Media/Award committee will be making some exciting changes to the 2023 award application," explained Award Committee member, Lindsay Madaras. "As the landscape of worksite well-being continues to evolve, we want to ensure that the application reflects those changes. Moving forward, the award will have a stronger emphasis on how organizations support the holistic well-being of their employees with a greater focus on topics like mental health, financial wellness and more. In addition, the application will better align with organizations that have shifted to a remote and/or hybrid work environment."
Details regarding the awards ceremony will be provided to award recipients shortly.
