(Springfield, Ore.) Sept. 7, 2021— 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 1,500-4,999 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 support our employees’ health and well-being, especially during a pandemic,” said Sabrina Halstead, employee well-being program manager for PacificSource Health Plans. “Our well-being program is constantly growing and evolving to help our employees be their best selves, empowering healthy lifestyle behaviors that will serve them at work, at home, and in their community. It’s all connected, and it’s important that our well-being program reflects that.”
