Custom Concrete Named Healthiest Employer
Westfield, Ind.-based Custom Concrete recently received recognition with the Healthiest Employer award for all Central Indiana companies with 100 – 499 employees. The award honors companies and organizations that take employee health seriously by offering wellness programs that are thorough, innovative and make a difference in the lives of employees and their families.
Custom Concrete’s nomination was in direct correlation to the company’s philosophy that wellness is a marathon, not a sprint. Their wellness program touts a very high participation rate and seeks to inform, educate and facilitate a healthier lifestyle both at work and at home for their employees.
According to Custom Concrete’s Chief Operating Officer Doug Staebler, being a healthy employer is a win-win proposition. “Less than three short years ago, we were just beginning the journey and trying to determine how we could help our employees achieve meaningful improvements in their health as well as for their entire family. The notion of corporate wellness was not at all common for contractors, but we were convinced that we could help our employees through a combination of education that was both fun and effective, as well as offering financial incentives connected to our group medical insurance plan,” he said. “We have had outstanding guidance and support from American Health and Wellness along the way. Our employees have embraced the wellness program which is now a big part of the culture at Custom Concrete, and we look forward to new wellness initiatives as we move forward.”
The company is currently creating a “path to wellness” in conjunction with the city of Westfield. Custom Concrete is located adjacent to the Monon Trail in Hamilton County and the location offers a healthy commuting alternative to driving.
