2012 Wealth of Health

Organizations in the Rochester area are getting serious about promoting wellness, going beyond simply helping employees shed a few pounds or quit smoking.
 
From fully equipped on-site fitness facilities to financial seminars, employers are pushing for a well-rounded approach to healthy living.
 
Thirteen local employers will be honored for doing just that. They will receive the 2012 Wealth of Health Awards, presented by Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, Rochester Region, and the Rochester Business Journal. The awards now are in their seventh year.
 
Honorees were judged on employee in-volvement in health initiatives, the creativity of these activities to reach specific targets, sustainability of programs and measurable outcomes. They were grouped by size, determined by the number of full-time and part-time employees. A new Best in Show award also will be given this year.
 
The Wealth of Health Awards luncheon is scheduled for noon to 1:30 p.m. June 14 at the Hyatt Regency Rochester. Rachel Carmen, senior health project coordinator for Well-U at the University of Rochester, will speak.

Inside is a closer look at each honoree’s commitment to fostering health.
