The Index is a product of AHA’s CEO Roundtable, which includes Humana President and CEO Bruce Broussard. The Roundtable is dedicated to gathering and sharing the best evidence-based approaches to workplace health to improve the well-being of our nation’s companies, their employees and communities.
“Well-being drives our culture at Humana – for our associates and all the people we serve – so we’re honored to receive this recognition from the American Heart Association,” Broussard said. “As a company, we’re experiencing more healthy days and less stress, which inspires our workforce and makes our business stronger. By paying attention to our own health journeys, we’re in a better position to help our members with their health.”
Humana focuses on whole-person well-being, aiming to improve every employee’s sense of purpose, health, belonging and security to build a thriving workforce over the long term. The company has seen positive trends, including:
“Well-being is a powerful social movement at Humana, and it brings our associates together like nothing else,” said Tim State, Vice President, Associate Health and Well-being, “We’ve found that as our health and well-being improve, we’re more productive, engaged and effective across all aspects of our lives.”
Humana employees also enjoy benefits like flexible work arrangements, financial planning and network resource groups. Humana’s health and wellness rewards program, Go365, offers personalized activities, tracking, support and rewards to encourage healthier lifestyles.
Humana employees are allowed time off to volunteer, and the response has exceeded expectations. By the end of 2016, 47 percent of employees had logged volunteer time.
In addition, fun events like the annual 100 Day Dash keep employees moving and allow them to challenge and encourage one another. In 2017, Dashers logged 8.3 million miles of steps – enough to circle Earth over 330 times. More than 23,000 people participated in 2017.
This focus on holistic health means Humana employees have fewer unhealthy days, less stress, and more engagement at work, creating a passion for well-being that helps Humana inspire and encourage others.
