Cincinnati, OH – HORAN, a leading advisor in employee benefits and financial services, was named one of the 2015 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America. The award recognizes employers that demonstrate strategic thought leadership and help define the course of corporate wellness.

Healthiest Employers™, a leading researcher in corporate health, recognized HORAN as the 90th healthiest workplace in the country. HORAN was one of only eight companies with fewer than 100 employees on its health plan to be awarded.

"HORAN promotes workplace wellness to enhance the well-being of our employees and provide a model for our clients," said Terry Horan, President and CEO of HORAN. "We believe that our employees are our company’s biggest asset. We also believe that healthy employees contribute to a productive and positive workplace environment for our clients. Because of these beliefs, our goal is to ensure that we are taking care of our employees and that they have the tools to take care of themselves."

The top 35% of all employers who participated in their local Healthiest Employers wellness assessment were asked to complete a Healthiest 100 evaluation which primarily focused on wellness outcomes. Healthiest Employers assessed more than 800 finalists on six wellness-related criteria: culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communications and marketing, programming and interventions and reporting and analysis. The results produced the Healthiest 100 list.

Healthiest Employers announced the 2015 Healthiest 100 honorees at the Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress taking place from September 28 to 30 in Orlando, Florida. More than one-third of the 2015 Healthiest 100 represent the Midwest region and 76% of the winners have more than 500 employees on the health plan.

HORAN’s wellness program was established seven years ago and the organization is proud of its tremendous success. The company was recognized as a Cincinnati Healthiest Employer (2012, 2013 and 2014), a Dayton Healthiest Employer (2014, 2015) and a Healthy Ohio Healthy Worksite honoree (2014).

“We believe wellness programs and health management are tools to help combat the challenges of providing quality, cost-efficient health care for employees,” said Valerie Bogdan-Powers, Vice President of Employee Benefit Services. “We promote workplace wellness to enhance employee well-being and provide a model of success for clients to demonstrate the positive impact wellness has in a business environment.”
