(Wyomissing – February, 11 2019) – The results of the American Heart Association 2018 Workplace Health Achievement Index were announced today and TRIOSE achieved Gold level recognition for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace. TRIOSE, a healthcare solutions company based out of Wyomissing, PA, is committed to making sure that its employees have heart-healthy lifestyles. TRIOSE offers many different ways for its employees to stay healthy including offering a unique wellness program to all employees, that encourages them to be active and eat healthy.
The American Heart Association created the Index with its CEO Roundtable members, 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. The 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 1000 companies completed the Index assessment this year and, of those companies, 75% received either Gold, Silver, or Bronze recognition. Companies receive benchmarking reports, which allow them to identify potential areas of improvement so that they can advance their annual performance and recognition in the Index and help their workforce move toward ideal heart health.
“We are so honored to have been awarded Gold Level recognition for our achievement,” says TRIOSE’s Lanette Miller, Director of Human Resources. “We work hard to ensure that our employees stay healthy through a plethora of activities both at the office and at home. These range from Lunch and Learn sessions that aim to educate our employees about their health, to our Year of Adventure, where we encourage our employees to participate in outdoor adventures and share their experiences with their coworkers. Overall, we want to help our employees live healthy lifestyles, and we want to provide them with the tools to do so.”
The Association’s Workplace Health Achievement Index allows companies to measure the effectiveness of their workplace health programs as well as the overall heart health of their employees. Unlike other existing organizational scorecards, the Index also scores companies on the heart health of their employees based on Life’s Simple 7® – the Association’s scientifically validated definition of ideal heart health. The American Heart Association’s Workplace Health Achievement Index assessment is grounded in data-driven science and a quality improvement framework. According to the Nielsen 2016 Employee Health Survey, robust and comprehensive strategies for wellbeing are associated with positive impacts on employees’ health.
