Thirty-two California Chamber of Commerce member companies have been recognized as some of the healthiest employers to work for in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The “2016 Healthiest Employers” special report, a joint project of the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal, honored 76 companies in the Greater Bay Area that have built comprehensive and innovative wellness programs that take employee health and well-being to the next level.
These employers have created competitions and incentives, offer healthy diet alternatives, weight loss and smoking cessation programs, walking programs, and fitness classes.
According to the San Francisco Business Times, many employers see that company wellness programs not only lead to happier employees, but it’s also just good business.
“Studies have shown that implementing wellness programs, incentives and amenities in the workplace can lower health care costs and lead to higher productivity and increased morale,” the San Francisco Business Times writes.
The report compiled by Healthiest Employer LLC groups companies into four categories: Largest Employers (2,000+ employees), Large Employers (500–1,999 employees), Midsize Employers (100–499 employees), and Small Employers (25–99 employees).
