USI Recognized for Workplace Health Achievement by the American Heart Association Three Years in a Row

Annual Workplace Health Achievement Index Applies Science-based Best Practices to Evaluate Overall Quality and Comprehensiveness of Workplace Health Programs

VALHALLA, N.Y., Nov. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The results of the American Heart Association’s 2020 Workplace Health Achievement Index were recently announced, and USI Insurance Services (“USI”) achieved Gold level recognition for the third year in a row. Companies recognized at the Gold level are among those that obtained the highest Index scores in 2020 for advancing quality workplace health programs and supporting a culture of health best practices. Out of the more than 1,000 participating organizations, USI was once again the only insurance brokerage and consulting firm to receive Gold level recognition in the “greater than 5,000 employees” category.

“USI’s Gold level recognition for workplace health achievement by the American Heart Association is reflective of the ongoing priority we place on the health of our more than 8,000 employees,” stated Kim Van Orman, senior vice president and chief human resources officer for USI. “Through USI’s Wellness program, we are continually working to support and engage employees through timely information and innovative wellness offerings designed to drive positive health outcomes for our employees and their families.”

The American Heart Association created the Workplace Health Achievement Index with its CEO Roundtable members, a leadership collaborative 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 uses science-based best practices to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of their workplace health programs. Studies show that organizations with a strong culture of health, including comprehensive, evidence-based policies and programs, and senior leadership support, are more likely to have engaged employees and a healthier, more productive workforce.
