HOUSTON, Texas and NEW YORK, N.Y., Aug. 22, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants, a retail property, casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, announced today that EPIC’s Houston office and New York-based Frenkel & Company – an EPIC Company have received Bronze level recognitions in the American Heart Association’s Workplace Health Achievement Index. This is Frenkel’s 11th recognition and both offices were acknowledged for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace.
“At EPIC, we are committed to building a workplace culture that promotes a healthy lifestyle for our employees, so it’s an honor to be recognized for that effort,” said John Hahn, CEO of EPIC. “We truly believe that a healthy employee is a happy, engaged, and productive employee. We place a strong emphasis on promoting health and wellness in the workplace to increase productivity, boost morale, reduce stress and increase our connectivity with the community.”
The American Heart Association created the Index with its CEO Roundtable members, a leadership collaborative of more than 40 CEOs from some of America’s largest companies who are committed to applying evidence-based approaches to improve their employees’ overall health. The Index uses science-based best practices to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of their workplace health programs. A unique feature of the Index is that it calculates an average heart health score for employees of participating companies that securely submit aggregate health data.
More than 1,000 companies completed the Index assessment this year and, of those companies, 75 percent received either Gold, Silver or Bronze recognition. Companies receive benchmarking reports, which allow them to identify potential areas of improvement so that they can advance their annual performance and recognition in the Index and help their workforce move toward ideal heart health.
