The results of the American Heart Association’s 2018 Workplace Health Achievement Index were announced this summer, and USI achieved Gold level recognition for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace. Companies recognized at the Gold level are among those that obtained the highest Index scores in 2018. Out of the more than 1,000 participating organizations, USI was the only insurance brokerage and consulting firm to receive Gold level recognition in the “greater than 5,000 employees” category.
The American Heart Association created the Index with its CEO Roundtable members, a collaboration 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 scores organizations on 55 individual best practices, across seven categories of organizational best practices (leadership, engagement, programs, policies and environment, partnerships, communications, and reporting outcomes), and the objective, unbiased science-based assessment of overall workplace heart health using My Life Check® or an equivalent source.
