We are excited to announce that JFA, along with our client, Wildwood Programs, have once again achieved the Gold Level of the American Heart Association’s Workplace Health Achievement Index! This is JFA’s third year in a row, and Wildwood Programs second year in a row, receiving a Gold Level Recognition. The Index uses science-based best practices to evaluate overall quality and comprehensiveness of workplace health programs and measures the extent to which a company has implemented workplace health best practices as defined by the American Heart Association. Companies recognized at the Gold level have achieved an Index score of 175 – 217 out of a maximum 217 points!
The Workplace Health Achievement Index (WHAI) is a catalyst for positive change. Worksites throughout the nation can be part of the initiative by making the health and wellness of their employees a priority. AHA’s five-step process guides you to assess the culture, structure and health outcomes of your organization’s workplace health program, and provides you with expert resources for making improvements which, best practice and scientific evidence strongly suggests, can lead to increased engagement and productivity while also reducing healthcare costs and employee turnover. The WHAI framework was built so organizations would continue to strive to improve the health of their workplace and their workforce from one year to the next.
Gold recognized companies will be listed in the November 30, 2019 issue of Forbes’ magazine with an accompanying infographic about workplace health.
Congratulations to Wildwood Programs! We applaud your dedication to improving your culture of workplace health! To learn more and see a full listing of the 2019 Recognized Organizations visit – www.heart.org/whsrecognitions
