Nature’s Sunshine Products is once again among the Healthiest Companies in America, according to research by wellness solutions firm Interactive Health.
To compile its annual list, Chicago-based Interactive Health evaluates approximately 2,000 companies each year. Honorees must achieve wellness program participation rates in excess of 70 percent, and a low-risk health score for their total population, based on clinical health evaluations. In 2015, just 154 companies made the cut. NSP is the only company to earn the award for nine consecutive years.
“The tremendous executive support of our wellness program and its many options is what makes such an award possible,” said Christine Frazier, Manager of Insurance Benefits and Wellness at NSP. “Their support, combined with the efforts and dedication of our employees, have made our company a happier, healthier place to work.”
The Utah-based company, which sells a range of natural health and wellness products, has sought to promote a “culture of health” at its corporate office. Employees receive complimentary NSP products and are rewarded for participating in various health initiatives, such as a 12-Week Fitness Challenge, an annual 5K Fun Run and gym membership reimbursements.
“The Healthiest Companies in America award recipients prove that employers can both engage their employees and improve their health outcomes,” said Cathy Kenworthy, President and CEO of Interactive Health.
