PacificSource Health Plans Ranked No. 5 Among Oregon’s Healthiest Large Employers

(Springfield, Ore.) September 4, 2019 PacificSource Health Plans was recently ranked No. 5 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 support our employees’ health and well-being,” said Sabrina Halstead, wellness coordinator 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.”

PacificSource’s shift from employee wellness to the five Dimensions of Well-being played a critical role in the recognition, focusing on employees’ emotional, physical, financial, community, and occupational well-being. In particular, PacificSource was recognized for its efforts to support and destigmatize mental health, drastically increasing EAP utilization, and creating a safe environment for employees to get the care they need.

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, an online health engagement web portal, complimentary run/walk entry fees, and an employee-focused wellness committee and dedicated employee wellness specialists on staff.
