Healthiest Employers Hall of Fame – 2023 Inductees

2023 Inductees

February 24, 2023

Healthiest Employers® was started in 2009 as a way to celebrate companies that are putting their people first by investing in the health of their employees. The awards program started in Indianapolis and quickly scaled its reach across the United States.

Healthiest Employers’ co-founders, Rod Reasen and Phil Daniels, recognized a shift in how healthcare was delivered coupled with the need for employers to take a more prominent role in supporting their employees’ health and fighting back against rising health costs. A lot has changed since 2009, but one thing remains the same – Healthiest Employers continues to highlight the best and brightest in employee health and well-being. 

For the past decade, our team has celebrated the Healthiest 100™ Workplaces in America as part of our national awards program, administered by Springbuk. This program honors the “best of the best” in corporate health and wellness. Every fall, the list is published announcing the top 100 companies that placed across all regions, locations, and company sizes.

In 2022, we began our Healthiest Employers Hall of Fame. Inductees regularly demonstrate an ongoing commitment to their employees by regularly modifying and altering programs to best fit their populations’ needs. Last year, 20 companies were inducted into the Healthiest Employers Hall of Fame.
