Draper named America’s Healthiest Workplace

(Spiceland, IN)—Draper, Inc. has been named the healthiest workplace in the United States for 2014.

Draper tops a list of 100 companies honored by Healthiest Employers LLC, a national organization dedicated to help improve the wellness of American workers.

“We are honored to receive this recognition,” says John Pidgeon, President of Draper. “We want to commend Draper’s Safety and Wellness Director, Linda Brinson, and the members of our Wellness Committee for their hard work, and all Draper employees and their family members who have supported this effort. We also want to recognize the Henry County Hospital, who staff the Draper employee health clinic and share the cost of an employee health coach with us.”

Draper Safety and Wellness Director Linda Brinson credits company management with the program’s success.

“Draper top management has given full support in all the various wellness initiatives we have offered, which is an important key for any company to have a successful wellness and safety plan,” she says. “I started at Draper as the Safety and Wellness Director seven years ago and we have gone from raising awareness to helping employees understand the stressors that drive them to unhealthy habits—and giving them tools to succeed.”

The Healthiest Workplace Award program is operated throughout the United States by Healthiest Employers LLC. Six areas of “workplace wellness” were considered by a group of independent judges: culture and leadership; foundational components; strategic planning; communication and marketing; programming and interventions; and reporting and analysis. The awards recognize employers who have comprehensively incorporated the most effective employee wellness programs and practices.
“This highly selective award recognizes employers who demonstrate exceptional leadership in using wellness as a strategy to drive workplace productivity, employee health, and community well-being,” according to Rod Reasen II, President of Healthiest Employers. “As these employers demonstrate, every organization has a path to the Healthiest 100, regardless of size, industry or geography.”
