Baltimore County company recognized with national healthy workforce designation
Insurance carrier Cigna Monday selected Owings Mills-based David S. Brown Enterprises as a recipient of its Bronze Level Healthy Workforce Designation for demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the health and well-being of its employees through a workplace wellness program.
As part of the workplace wellness program, the company creates monthly and weekly challenges surrounding overall health and well-being to include fitness activities, nutrition education, meal planning, financial wellness tips and mental health support.
Investing in an effective workplace well-being program drives value for employers. Senior executives surveyed as part of an economist impact study commissioned by Cigna reported greater productivity, stronger staff morale and motivation and greater retention and loyalty as the most significant business outcomes of a healthy workforce. Additionally, a Gallup Report finds that on average, companies with high employee engagement are 23% more profitable.
