Saint Francis University has been awarded the title of Healthiest Employer by HealthiestEmployers.com. The site recognizes organizations that are committed to creating a healthy workplace.
To participate in the award program employers complete an online assessment that compares workplace wellness programs to other regional and national employers. The online tool measures the wellness programs in six key categories: Culture and Leadership Commitment, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analysis.
The programs at Saint Francis focus on physical, spiritual, emotional, environmental, social, and intellectual wellness and include: weight management, smoking cessation, stress management, and more. Saint Francis also recognizes the national health observances each month and offers group exercise classes and employee use of the state of the art fitness center at the DiSepio Institute for Rural Health and Wellness.
