Cigna Healthcare has selected Association Headquarters as a recipient of their 2023 Bronze Level Healthy Workforce Designation for demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the health and vitality of its employees through a workplace well-being program.

Throughout 2023, Association Headquarters did an outstanding job in incorporating different types of wellness initiatives across the organization within the plan year from physical wellbeing, financial wellbeing, emotional wellbeing, and social wellbeing. Webinars were held for all employees and topics covered preventative care, stress and anxiety management, nutrition to support mental health, and mindfulness.

“At Association Headquarters, employee health is our top priority. We are honored to be recognized with the Cigna Healthy Workforce Designation,” states Bob Waller, AH’s President & CEO. “We understand the important role employee well-being plays in an organization’s success and the relationship between healthy employees contributing to a more productive, satisfied workforce and positive business performance.”

Vitality is defined as the capacity to pursue life with health, strength and energy. It is both a driver and an outcome of health and work/life engagement, and Cigna Healthcare believes it is not only essential to individuals, but also a catalyst for business and community growth. Research conducted as part of the Evernorth Vitality Index confirms that those with higher vitality experience better mental and physical health along with higher levels of job satisfaction and performance. An opportunity remains for employers as less than one in five U.S. adults report having high levels of vitality. A workplace well- being program that takes a comprehensive approach to employee health can be critical in boosting vitality and building a workforce that experiences better overall health and job productivity.

“Higher vitality is linked to a more motivated, connected, and productive workforce,” said Kari Knight Stevens, executive vice president and chief human resources officer, The Cigna Group. “Employers that foster vitality will fuel a healthier workplace and drive business and economic growth. That’s why we’re proud to recognize employers for their efforts to prioritize multiple dimensions of wellness, build a culture of health, and boost employee engagement.”

The Cigna Healthy Workforce Designation evaluates organizations based on the core components of their well-being program, including leadership and culture, program foundations and execution, policies and accommodations, and additional areas. Organizations recognized with this designation set the standard of excellence for organizational health and vitality. Cigna Healthcare is proud to honor Association Headquarters with the Bronze level designation for having made good progress towards a healthy work culture by establishing and growing their employee well-being and engagement program.
