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.
“Providing programs, resources and education to help our employees live a healthy lifestyle are the cornerstones of our wellness initiatives,” said Jean Tapley, benefits and wellness supervisor in Amica’s human resources department. “The fitness world is changing, and we want to support our employees and their families as they take advantage of these methods of staying healthy. Our fitness reimbursement program now includes the cost of race registration fees, personal training and virtual fitness class memberships. Healthy employees are happy employees, which lends itself to our reputation of providing the highest level of customer service.”
Amica was one of nearly 60 Rhode Island businesses honored by BCBSRI and the Chamber with a Worksite Health Award at a breakfast attended by hundreds of state business leaders. The event celebrated local businesses who have demonstrated a commitment to improving Rhode Islanders’ overall health through innovative wellness programs, as companies and individuals.
“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 its team, and for inspiring more Rhode Island businesses to find creative ways to help their employees live better, healthier and happier lives.”
