Kitchell was recently recognized by The Business Journal of Phoenix as a Healthiest Employer, which is a great indication that we’re on the right track when it comes to keeping our employee-owners happy and healthy! We were ranked #2 in the midsized company category. Our status as a finalist automatically qualifies us to be considered as one of the 100 Healthiest Workplaces in America.
The rankings are conducted by Healthiest Employers®, which surveys companies in 50 metropolitan markets across the country. 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 by representatives from academia, medicine, HR and wellness industries and will be considered for similar rankings in Sacramento and San Diego (two other markets where Healthiest Employers® has programs).
The companies recognized in the rankings include nonprofits, government/municipalities and privately held companies that provide a wide range of health services and incentives. Watch CEO Jim Swanson’s interview about our health/wellness program at this link:
