The Healthy Business Council of Ohio (HBCO) has announced that 96 Ohio employers have been recognized for healthy worksite practices in 2022. All 96 worksites will receive recognition within the state-wide organization’s tiered designation program the Healthy Worksite Award. Among the recipients being honored is John Carroll University.

The Healthy Worksite Award recognizes Ohio employers who demonstrate a commitment to employee wellness through comprehensive worksite health promotion and wellness programs. Applicants are scored on the extent their wellness programs facilitate and encourage employee health, enhance productivity, and ensure a healthy work environment.

All applications were reviewed and evaluated using objective criteria. Four levels of high achievement were awarded in 2022 —Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, in addition to an entry-level tier of “recognition”. To celebrate the accomplishments of Ohio worksites and their efforts to pivot and adapt during the pandemic, a Pandemic Response Section was included in this year’s extensive award application.

For a full list of 2022 award winners, please visit the HBCO’s Healthy Worksite Award website or view this 2022 HBCO Award Winners list.
