Kitchell ranked as one of the Healthiest Employers in America!

Kitchell is ranked #34 on the 2022 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America! This ranking is a testament to the wellness and benefits offerings we have to keep our employee-owners happy and healthy. The listing follows our status as a finalist for Healthiest Employer in the midsize category in The Business Journal of Phoenix.

Every year, Healthiest Employers® names the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America from regional applicants of various sizes, locations and industries. Healthiest Employers® surveys companies in 50 metropolitan markets across the country. Earlier this year, our HR team completed an exhaustive survey of employee well-being initiatives that included culture/leadership commitment, foundational components of our wellness plan, planning for future healthcare/wellness needs, communications, programming/interventions and reporting/analytics. The assessment was created, scored and benchmarked by representatives from all over the country in academia, medicine, HR, wellness and business communities.

“This award speaks volumes to employers’ investments in employee health beyond traditional physical wellness benefits,”  said Healthiest Employers Program Coordinator Haley Elmore.

The Healthiest Employers assessment is scored Rubric style on a 1-100 scale. The assessment comprises six categories of yes/no, multiple choice, and short answer questions, with each question totaling .25-3 points. The six categories are:

  • Culture and Leadership Commitment
  • Foundational Components
  • Strategic Planning
  • Communications and Marketing
  • Programming and Interventions
  • Reporting and Analytics

To qualify for the national award, applicants also are scored based on an additional section called “the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America,” which scores the applicant essays and asks additional questions related to chronic conditions and workplace health.
