PHOENIX, May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CopperPoint Insurance Companies has been named one of the Healthiest Companies in America by Interactive Health, a provider of wellness solutions for businesses. This annual award honors corporations who have invested in and improved the health of their workers.

"At CopperPoint, encouraging a healthy lifestyle is an important part of our company culture," said Marc Schmittlein, President & CEO, CopperPoint Insurance Companies. “Whether it’s taking a mood-boosting exercise class or working with a health coach to achieve a personal goal, employees who feel their best are more productive and more engaged.”

To be recognized, awardees reached or exceeded a 70 percent participation rate in their workplace wellness program, and their workforces’ overall health risk was low — based on the results of an annual health evaluation. CopperPoint’s employee participation rate in workplace wellness programs was 83%.

“We believe in optimizing the health and well-being of our employees,” said Rachel Davis-Schultz, Senior Vice President, Chief Human Resource Officer for CopperPoint. “This focus on wellness is consistent with our corporate values and makes CopperPoint an appealing place to work.”

CopperPoint’s headquarters offer employees an on-site healthcare clinic, gym and a game room. Employees also can participate in yoga, Zumba, CardioFit and other wellness classes. The company also hosts convenient on-site mammograms, prostate exams, flu shots and other health-related services.

“In an era of record-low unemployment, employers must figure out a way to differentiate themselves and show that they care,” said Interactive Health CEO Bill Goldberg. “Investing in the health of your employees not only achieves that but has far-reaching implications across the organization. A healthier workforce is one that is happier, more engaged and more productive.”

CopperPoint is one of 151 companies nationwide to receive the award this year, and one of only 45 companies who have made the list five years or more.
