KANSAS CITY, MO. (October 18, 2023)—Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC) has once again been recognized as one of the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America for 2023 by Healthiest Employers®, the leading national recognition program for employee wellness. Blue KC rose 5 spots from the previous year, up to #31. The award honors organizations from around the country that are demonstrating care for their employees by investing in health and well-being solutions and initiatives.
“Being recognized as one of the healthiest workplaces in America is a testament to who we are as a company,” said Erin Stucky, Blue KC’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This award is a celebration of our commitment to each other, and a workplace culture of wellness which allows us to best serve our community members and partners.”
The categories, scoring, and benchmarking were formed with the help of a national, non-biased group of representatives from the academic, medical, wellness and business communities. Each organization was assessed based on the following six categories: Culture and Leadership Commitment, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communications and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analytics. Additionally, applicants were scored based on a submitted essay asking additional questions related to chronic conditions and workplace health. More information about the national award, including a list of the 100 honorees, can be found here.
Since 2009, Healthiest Employers® has been the leading recognition program for employee wellness. The organization currently hosts award ceremonies in over 45 regions across the country.
