PacificSource Health Plans Ranked No. 4 Among Oregon’s Healthiest Large Employers
(SPRINGFIELD, Ore.) Sept. 12, 2017— PacificSource Health Plans was recently ranked No. 4 among large businesses on the Portland Business Journal’s annual list of Healthiest Employers of Oregon. (The survey qualified large businesses as those with 500-1,499 employees)
The annual survey, conducted by Healthiest Companies LLC, measured companies through an online assessment utilizing more than 70 questions, based on six key categories: culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communications and marketing, programming and interventions, as well as reporting and analysis.
“Being named as one of the Healthiest Employers of Oregon is affirmation of the commitment PacificSource Health Plans has made to foster a healthy work environment,” said Sally Cummings, wellness coordinator for PacificSource Health Plans. “Through our ongoing wellness program, PacificSource has created a culture that supports a healthy lifestyle for all its employees that we believe will last a lifetime.”
PacificSource’s “Healthy High 5” program played a critical role in the recognition. Through the program, employees are asked to complete five activities that help prevent long-term chronic conditions and diseases. After completing the activities, which include a dental cleaning, Primary Care Provider designation, biometric screening, HRA completion, and a flu shot, the participating employees are rewarded with $150 to put toward a charitable donation or one-time bonus.
PacificSource also offers health-promoting tools that include sit/stand workstations, healthy food offerings at staff meetings and in vending machines, access to onsite fitness classes and exercise facilities, company-wide fitness challenges, monthly staff wellness seminars, a comprehensive online health engagement web portal, complimentary run/walk entry fees, and an employee-focused wellness committee and dedicated employee wellness specialists on staff.
PacificSource Health Plans was also recently recognized by The American Heart Association earlier this year as a Bronze-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite.
