CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Medical Mutual has been named the Healthiest Employer of its size in Ohio and was ranked 33rd nationally on the Healthiest 100 Workplace List.

According to Springbuk, the health analytics company that conducts the Healthiest Employers awards program, the rankings reflect a company that makes employee well-being a top priority and offers exceptional health and wellness programming. Honorees implement programs across financial, mental, emotional, spiritual and social pillars of well-being, and show vision, expertise and continuous improvement in achieving a culture of employee wellness, according to Springbuk’s website. Hundreds of companies apply for this recognition each year.

Applicants are evaluated in six categories, including culture and leadership, strategic planning, communication and marketing, and programming and interventions. Medical Mutual earned Healthiest Employer in Ohio among organizations with 1,500 to 4,999 employees, ranking ahead of finalists including AmTrust Financial, the City of Cincinnati, the City of Dayton, Cincinnati Public Schools and Montgomery County. Nationally, Medical Mutual ranked 33rd among the 100 Healthiest Workplaces because of “a holistic approach to employee well-being.”

Integration of population health with employee wellness programs was crucial to Medical Mutual earning this recognition. The company’s wellness program uses annual health risk assessments and biometric checks to gauge the health of employees and incentivize health improvements. An array of wellness initiatives and services, including tailored care for those with chronic conditions, helps employees achieve optimal health while reducing healthcare costs.

“It’s incredibly important for us to provide all our employees with the resources they need to develop and maintain healthy lifestyle habits and true behavior changes,’’ says Dr. Teresa Koenig, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at Medical Mutual. “We care about making sure everyone who works for Medical Mutual is living the healthiest life they can both physically and emotionally, which has been more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
