Montgomery County selected for Healthiest Employers Award

 Dayton, OH (June 18, 2020) – Montgomery County has been named as one of the Healthiest Employers in the region by Dayton Business Journal. A total of 25 organizations and companies were judged and selected for having outstanding health and wellbeing programs for their employees.

Montgomery County Commission President Judy Dodge said she is thrilled the county has been recognized for its healthy corporate culture and dedication to employee wellbeing.

“This really means a lot, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact that it has had on our workplace and our employees,” Dodge said. “We are so grateful to our employees, who have been at the forefront providing vital community services this entire time. They have given so much to their community and fellow citizens and continue to do so every day.”

Six core areas were judged:

  • Cultural and leadership commitment
  • Foundational components        
  • Strategic planning
  • Communication and marketing
  • Programming and interventions
  • Reporting and analysis

Healthiest Employers promote wellness in business, education, and not-for-profit employer groups. It aims to highlight the importance of providing a healthy work environment and reward the organizations that do so.

“We really try to make this a workplace where people are rewarded for taking care of their mental, emotional, financial and physical wellbeing, and where people are given the opportunity to make healthy decisions each day,” Director of Human Resources Joyce Carter said.

Dayton Business Journal will announce the full list of award winners this week. Winners will be highlighted in the Healthiest Employers supplement in September.

The Healthiest Employers competition is sponsored by Marsh & McLennan Agency. This is the 8th year of the competition.
