BUFFALO, NY (September 26, 2017) – Walsh Duffield has been ranked 42nd on the national list of healthiest employers for 2017.  Select employers from each state were named to the list and were honored for their commitment to employee heath, with exceptional corporate wellness programming.

Western New York had a strong representation on the list, which shows the communities overall dedication to continued health.  Other local organizations who ranked include: Tops Markets #59, Lawley #68, Seneca Gaming #80, ESL Federal Credit Union(Rochester)#84, and New Era #90.

Award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Culture and Leadership, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analysis. Completed assessments were ranked with the proprietary Healthiest Employer Index, a 1-100 metric for wellness programming.

“A successful wellness program requires active engagement, and is evident in everyday work activities that not only focus on physical health but also recognizes the importance of emotional, mental, social, financial, and professional health,” Marie Story, Wellness Team Leader at Walsh Duffield explains of their wellness philosophy. “Wellness is infused within the Walsh Duffield culture, promoting well-being in all areas of life. We are honored to be recognized with many other great organizations committed to the overall wellness of our community”

While Walsh Duffield focuses on bringing wellness and risk management solutions to clients in the business insurance world, the team of three wellness coordinators has seen some of the greatest success stories within the walls of the Walsh offices.  Walsh Duffield’s wellness program allows employees and their spouses the opportunity to participate in an annual biometric screening for metabolic syndrome. This program provides insight into how each individual can make healthy lifestyle changes to lower their risk for chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and even some types of cancer. The goal is to make participants aware of their health status and then give them the tools to lead a healthier lifestyle.  90% of employees engaged with their physician last year and aggregate reporting for the screening program shows positive shifts in moving people from high to moderate to low risk with 86% of employees in the low-risk category.

The Walsh Duffield team is currently focused on the shift in measurement for corporate wellness programs.  In the past, there has been heavy emphasis on medical savings, but there are other growing ways to measure the Value on Investment (VOI) for wellness programs, such as assessing absenteeism, retention, recruitment and employee morale. Wellness is much more than just physical health and disease prevention and when a program is truly successful, it is ingrained in an organization’s culture and a sign that a company is invested in its employees’ wellbeing.
