WordWrite client honored with a Healthiest Employer of Western Pennsylvania Award

 

Redstone Presbyterian SeniorCare, better known as Redstone Highlands Senior Living Communities, was recently named one of Pittsburgh’s healthiest employers at the Pittsburgh Business Times’ first-ever awards luncheon.

The Healthiest Employers of Western Pennsylvania were decided upon a web-based survey composed of 75 scored questions focused on their corporate wellness program and strategy. An algorithm then ranks each organization based on the responses in comparison to others.

With three locations throughout Western Pennsylvania, Redstone Highlands has more than 400 employees. Redstone’s wellness program is extended to all employees, including those not covered by the organization’s health insurance coverage. Their comprehensive wellness culture includes preventive opportunities, as well as personalized wellness coach advisement. The program features a Health Tracks Rewards program as an incentive, and rewards are earned through completion of wellness exercises.

“The awards were an example of the hard work that is being done by local companies in the area of wellness,” said Diane P. Holder, president and CEO of UPMC Health Plan, “a wellness program was key for companies as much as keeping its other assets in good health and repair.”

Redstone Highlands is a Christian, non-profit senior living organization open to all faiths, that is dedicated to providing alternatives and high quality services that help to meet the changing needs of the community. They have been a client of WordWrite Communications since February 2009.
