Best and Brightest Companies in Wellness™

The Best and Brightest In Wellness™ is an innovative initiative that recognizes and celebrates quality and excellence in health awareness. This unique program highlights companies, schools, faith-based groups, and organizations that promote a culture of wellness; and those that plan, implement, and evaluate efforts in employee wellness to make their business and the community a healthier place to live and work. There are four separate pools for scoring that include  Corporations, Wellness Providers, Schools and Faith-Based Organizations.

The assessments and reporting have shown us where our weaknesses are. We are now improving our communication skills within the organization and have learned you can never do too much of it.

Steven HandmakerChief Marketing Officer, Assurance

“The Best and Brightest program was the springboard from which we began our transformation from a client centered company to an employee centric culture. We have found the benefits to be wide spread and immeasurable. I liken the process we undergo in our application each year to that of an annual, corporate physical. We get a complete picture, via empirical data, as to the relative health of our organization.

Today, as a result of B&B, we have a virtual waiting room of employees ready to leave our competitors and join the company we have become. This is only possible because we now truly know how our people feel and are able to act upon that information in a never ending workplace improvement process.”
