Montgomery County selected for Healthiest Employers Award

Montgomery County has been named one of the Healthiest Employers of Ohio, an awards program created to honor organizations that prioritize the well-being of their employees. A total of 25 organizations and companies were selected across the state.

Montgomery County’s wellness program encourages employees to get annual biometric screenings and regular preventative healthcare visits. The county also offers smoking cessation resources, onsite wellness coaching, and an employee assistance program that can help with counseling, legal services, and financial services.

“I am thrilled the county has been recognized for the healthy corporate culture generated by employees,” said Montgomery County Commission President Judy Dodge. “We really try to make this a workplace where people are rewarded for taking care of themselves and are given the opportunity to make healthy decisions each day.”

Six core areas were judged:

  • Culture and leadership
  • Foundational components        
  • Strategic planning
  • Communication and marketing
  • Programming and interventions
  • Reporting and analytics

Healthiest Employers is scored and powered by Springbuk, a health intelligence platform.

“This really means a lot, especially now, because of the effects COVID-19 has had on our employees,” Dodge said. “We know that healthier people have a greater chance of surviving coronavirus infections. And we need our employees to stay healthy so they can take care of the people in our community who are struggling right now.”
