Dublin, Ohio, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Safeware, a leading provider of product protection and extended warranty solutions, is proud to announce they have been selected as a Columbus Business First’s 2018 Healthiest Employers honoree. In determining honorees, Columbus Business First seeks businesses who showcase inclusive and comprehensive health and wellness programs within their company.

“As a business based in Dublin, Ohio, Safeware is part of the quickly growing Central Ohio business community. We strive to stay competitive not only with our products, but also in the value we bring to our associates’ lives,” says Safeware’s Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Schutjer. “We pride ourselves in offering programs that directly benefit our associates, and this award illustrates our ongoing effort to provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive opportunities in health and wellness.”

Safeware strives to promote a healthy workplace from the top-down. The executive leadership team participates alongside associates in activities such as the Walking Challenge, the Biggest Loser Competition, and annual team sports leagues. Additionally, time is carved out each week in company-wide meetings to discuss relevant health and wellness topics.

Over the past four years, Safeware has established its own unique Corporate Wellness Program designed to incentivize associates for healthy living and proactive healthcare. Associates are able to participate in a variety of ways, from fitness classes to a “Brown Bag Challenge”. Points are earned through participation and can be redeemed for prizes like a VIP Luncheon. Preventative appointments such as dental and vision exams are also rewarded with points.

All Healthiest Employer applicants were split into categories by company size and evaluated based upon an extensive application. Questions include topics ranging from tangible outcomes of the company’s wellness program to documenting how executive leadership both supports and exemplifies the message of healthy living.

The fifth annual Healthiest Employers Awards & Live Well Expo will occur on Tuesday, March 6.
