At TRIOSE, we’ve always put people — our customers, colleagues, and communities — first. We believe that the strongest businesses are built by doing the right thing and going the extra mile. As a company dedicated to making a difference in healthcare and beyond, taking a proactive approach to employee health is simply part of our DNA and making a positive impact on the lives of our team members is part of our mission.
That’s why we’re especially pleased to announce that TRIOSE has just been named one of the Healthiest Employers of Greater Philadelphia. This prestigious recognition is the nation’s leading corporate wellbeing award, assessing employers of all industries and sizes on a broad spectrum of wellness and worksite health initiatives.
The results for TRIOSE are very gratifying — we’re thrilled to receive this coveted award! We also were pleased by the holistic view the award provides of our overall worksite health. TRIOSE is committed to offering employees abundant opportunities to achieve healthier, happier lives through our wellness program, so we wanted to compare our company initiatives against the nation’s most innovative, forward-looking companies that are investing in the health of their employees.
The Healthiest Employers award recognized the generous health benefits and positive results that TRIOSE provides employees. For example, we offer biometric screenings that give employees greater insights into their personal health — and our team members have used these insights to make remarkable gains. We saw a 13 percent drop in employees with high-risk low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and a 9 percent reduction in high-risk blood pressure.
As our CEO and founder Carl Joyner said, “When we started the TRIOSE Wellness Program 10 years ago, we decided we would build it from scratch. We knew we wanted to impact all phases of personal wellness for the TRIOSE team and not just the physical. I am so very proud to say that we have now achieved almost 70 percent participation in our program. It’s a real testament to the vision, enthusiasm, and commitment to health that’s shared by all of our team members!”
TRIOSE is a close-knit organization and our wellness committee leans on this culture to offer unique wellness opportunities, including:
- Olympics Field Day — Small teams of employees engage in friendly physical and mental competition, fueled by fun team names and uniforms.
- Annual Family Picnic — Employees and their families engage in different wellness activities, such as our hotly contested annual kickball game.
The pandemic, of course, posed unprecedented challenges for us all, but even when employees were apart, we encouraged people to share updates and experiences. This included:
- Year of Adventure Challenge — Fun projects, like exploring a new trail or getting muddy, were assigned each month. Employees were encouraged to document and share photos of their adventures.
- Alone Together COVID Challenge — Employees were provided prompts, like what is the weirdest thing you’re missing now. Answers were compiled into a presentation and shared with the company to acknowledge what we experienced.
Receiving recognition as one of the Healthiest Employers demonstrates the value of our long-term wellness initiatives — and spotlights our commitment to always prioritize, take action and go the extra mile to improve the lives of our employees.
