08/02/2017

LINCOLN, R.I. - Amica Insurance has once again been honored with an Exemplary Worksite Health Award from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island and the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce.

Now in its 23rd year, the Worksite Health Awards celebrate local businesses that have demonstrated a commitment to improving Rhode Islanders’ overall health through innovative wellness programs. Amica was one of 77 businesses honored during a ceremony on June 8 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick, Rhode Island. 

“We continue to look for programs that provide our employees with a healthy experience in the workplace,” said Jean Tapley, benefits and wellness supervisor in Amica’s human resources department. “We recently started offering mindfulness classes, which run for eight weeks. These classes have helped lower stress levels and improved employee mindfulness.”

“We commend Amica for investing in wellness programming and creating a stronger workforce,” said Kim Keck, president and CEO of Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island. “Employees who are encouraged to take charge of their own health and wellness feel empowered and valued.” 

“By increasing morale and production, and decreasing healthcare costs and sick leave, worksite health programs are a win for all involved,” said Laurie White, president of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce. “We applaud Amica for making the commitment to invest in the wellness of their team and for inspiring more Rhode Island businesses to find creative ways to help their employees live better, healthier and happier lives.”
