Healthiest Employers in the Technology Industry
How Tech-Savvy Organizations are Helping Their People
December 20, 2021
Each year, the Healthiest Employers® awards program honors companies who are considered leaders and innovators in workplace wellness. Our main award programs are broken down by the regional level. All applicants are then eligible for national recognition in the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America awards program.
This year, we decided to take the program a step further and honor our Healthiest Employers based on industry.
Below we have named the Healthiest Employers in the technology industry. This industry made up 10.5% of our 2021 applicant pool and the following organizations scored a 79.71 on the assessment, compared to the industry average of 60.05. Four of the following organizations were also recognized as one of the 2021 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America.
