Mercy Health — Springfield has once again earned recognition as one of the Greater Dayton region’s Healthiest Employers.

The Dayton Business Journal’s (DBJ) Healthiest Employers awards program recognizes employers that proactively shape the health of their employees. The companies taking part have made a commitment to impact the health of their workplace — and their bottom line.

The DBJ reviewed many nominations and only 25 of the most outstanding health and wellness programs created and implemented by local companies qualified for this exciting award.

Mercy Health’s employee well-being program, Be Well, is a key element in Mercy Health – Springfield’s multiple recognitions as a Healthiest Employer. The program helps guide employees on their personal and lifelong journey to better health and well-being. Be Well creates environments that make healthy behaviors easy, provides resources to guide healthy behavior and empowers associates to live their best lives.   

The DBJ partnered with technology and data research firm Healthiest Employers to assess the corporate wellness programs of nominated companies. Healthiest Employers established its proprietary scoring and benchmarking with the help of PhDs, physicians, c-level executives and wellness and human resource professionals from across the United States.

All the information is kept private, but participating employers are given a score after completing an online assessment tool that measures wellness programming in the areas of culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communication and marketing, programming and interventions, reporting and analysis.
