(Sept. 29, 2016) ‚ÄĒ¬†Springbuk Analytics, an Indianapolis-based health analytics company, has ranked five Kentucky companies among its¬†Healthiest 100¬†list of 2016 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America.¬†Humana Inc.¬†was ranked fourth,¬†Norton Healthcare seventh,¬†LG&E and KU Energy LLC 53rd,¬†Keller Williams Realty International 72nd and¬†Yum!

More than 5,000 employers applied for the award. The winning organizations were honored this week in Washington D.C.

Award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Vision, Culture/Engagement, Learning, Expertise, Metrics and Technology. Applicants were evaluated with the proprietary Healthiest Employer Index, a 1-100 metric for wellness programming. These organizations have achieved lasting success through a wide array of employee wellness initiatives and corporate wellness programs.

The Healthiest 100 uses a two-part scoring process. First, employers complete the Wellness Assessment at HealthiestEmployers.com. The Assessment is administered on a rolling basis throughout the calendar year in 45+ cities and metropolitan regions across nearly 40 states.

Applicants are scored with The Healthiest Employers Index (HEI), a 1-100 metric that addresses the six critical dimensions of workplace wellness: culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, annual planning, communications and marketing, programming and interventions, and reporting and analysis.

Based on the HEI, top ranking semi-finalists are invited to participate in the second stage of the awards contest. These employers complete a similar online instrument to further measure their worksite wellness program.
