2023 Winners

Healthiest Employers of Kentucky

On July 19th, we recognized our Healthiest Employers of Kentucky as part of the National Wellness Institute's 48th Annual Conference.

Healthiest Employers began in 2009 and is now hosted by Springbuk, a health data analytics solution that delivers actionable insights and allows employers and consultants to make smarter healthcare management decisions. For the 2023 event, we decided to partner with the National Wellness Institute, as it became evident that our goals for employers closely align and we both are working together to build a community within Healthiest Employers.

This year, our Kentucky applicants reported:

  • 90.9% provide financial well-being programs
  • 72.7% report leadership holds positions on health councils, boards, or organizations outside of the company
  • 54.5% have had a formal wellness program in place for more than 10 years
  • 27.3% provide an onsite clinic for employees and their families

Congratulations to our 2023 finalists!
