Olathe honored as one of the 2019 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America

Post Date:11/12/2019

The City of Olathe has been recognized as one of the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America by Health Intelligence company Springbuk.

The Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America award culminates the conclusion of the year-long wellness awards program in over 45 cities across the United States. Each of the winning companies is considered an exemplary leader for the effectiveness of their population health and wellbeing initiatives.

“As I reflect on our organization’s continued strides in the area of wellness, I think of the many opportunities that make an impact on our employees and their families,” said Assistant City Manager Susan Sherman. “We have the opportunity to cheer on those who are making a transformation through walking or better eating and to support those who are learning their health numbers or beginning to make choices that will improve their life and the lives of their family members. After all, our greatest wealth is our health and our organization's greatest asset is our healthy employees.”

Award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Culture and Leadership Commitment, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Marketing and Communications, Programming and Interventions, and lastly, Reporting and Analytics. Applicants were evaluated with the proprietary Healthiest Employers® Index, a 1-100 rubric for wellness programming. Winning organizations have achieved lasting success through a wide array of employee wellness initiatives and corporate wellness programs.
