Emlenton, Pennsylvania, April 24, 2019 – The Farmers National Bank of Emlenton has been named one of the “Healthiest Companies in America” by Interactive Health, whose workplace wellness program helps businesses invest in the health of their employees.
Farmers National Bank is one of 151 companies across the country recognized this year for empowering employees to make significant and sometimes life-saving changes to improve their health. This is the first year Farmers has won the award. To win the recognition, companies must have reached or exceeded a 70 percent participation rate in their organization’s wellness program, and their workforce’s overall health risk was low, based on the results of an annual health evaluation.
Annually, the Bank provides employees an opportunity to participate in an annual wellness exam that enables them to proactively take charge of their health. In addition to the exam, employees are provided a discount on their healthcare deductible. The Bank’s wellness program has also motivated employees to make healthy and mindful food and exercise choices by launching fitness challenges (nutrition, mental wellness and fitness), posting weekly wellness tips and offering an accountability portal with stories, recipes and photos. The Bank currently has half of its employees participating in a Step Challenge, in which they are “walking across the U.S” and stopping to see some fun attractions a long the way. This challenge promotes a healthy lifestyle while offering employees an opportunity to motivate and encourage each other.
“The best employers, like Farmers National Bank, figure out a way to differentiate themselves and show employees that they care,” said Interactive Health President and CEO Bill Goldberg. “Investing in the health of your employees not only achieves that but has far-reaching implications across the organization. A healthier workforce is one that is happier, more engaged and more productive.”
Participants in the Bank’s Interactive Health program have gained access to year-round personalized digital tools, coaching, wellness challenges, and fresh information about their health through an annual evaluation. This evaluation provides valuable information that empowers participants to adopt new habits. This process is what contributed to Farmers to being named among the country’s healthiest companies.
