Heffernan Insurance Brokers, one of the largest full-service, independent insurance brokerage firms in the United States, has been recognized as a winner of the 2014 Healthiest Employers, an awards program presented by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Heffernan ranked #2 on the list, moving up from #4 the prior year.
Select employers from the Bay Area were named winners of the awards program, held on September 5, 2014. These winning organizations were honored for their commitment to employee health, with exceptional corporate wellness programming.
Award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Wellness Program, Culture and Leadership, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Foundational Components and Programming and Interventions. Completed assessments were ranked with the proprietary Healthiest Employer Index, a 1-100 metric for wellness programming.
“We’re excited to be recognized as a Healthiest Employer,” said Adam Cox, Wellness Director. “I’m pleased that we continue to show that we’re not only serious about our business, but that we have a great environment for our employees and we continue to demonstrate our cultural commitment to employee health.”
