GETTING BAY HEALTHY AT HEALTHIEST EMPLOYERS AWARDS
Bay Healthy was front and center this week (Sept. 3) at San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Healthiest Employers Awards celebrating corporate wellness in the Bay Area. The event promotes the value of workplace wellness and recognizes companies who are demonstrating innovation and leadership in their health and wellness programs.
Developed in partnership with the Business Times and presented by Sutter Health, Bay Healthy is leveraging the strength of the region’s employer community to make a meaningful impact on the health of the Bay Area. At the event, Bay Area Council Economic Institute President Dr. Micah Weinberg and Healthcare Committee Co-Chair Dr. Kent Bradley presented the Bay Healthy video and discussed how the initiative enables individuals and employers to pledge One Thing—any small action or behavior related to nutrition, fitness, sleep, gratitude or volunteerism—toward improving their health. It equips employers with the tools to challenge and motivate their employees to do the same. The online platform also enables businesses to promote and reinforce workplace wellness programs already in place. Click here to pledge your One Thing and learn more about Bay Healthy>>

Congratulations to all the 2015 Healthiest Employers—especially Bay Area Council members Kaiser Permanente, Accenture, Hill Physicians Medical Group, Bayer HealthCare, CSAA Insurance Group, Webcor Builders, McCarthy Holdings, KKR, Wells Fargo Insurance, Arup and Suffolk Construction Company!
