SAIF has been recognized as one of the Healthiest Workplaces in America for the third year in a row. The award, presented by Springbuk, recognizes organizations for their commitment to employee health and exceptional corporate wellness programming. SAIF ranked ninth.
This is the third consecutive year SAIF has placed among the healthiest 100 workplaces, and the second year SAIF was ranked among the top 10.
SAIF was recognized for its commitment to Total Worker Health, a safety concept that integrates health and well-being with injury prevention and protection. In addition, SAIF stood out for high employee participation—97 percent of SAIF employees participate in the wellness program—and the free onsite Health and Wellness Center for employees.
“We are proud to be recognized for our focus on employee wellness,” said Jennifer Webster, SAIF's vice president of human resources. “We are especially honored after hearing what some of the other great organizations are doing-we are constantly looking at how to take our Total Worker Health efforts to the next level.”
Nearly 1,200 employers applied for the Springbuk award. Other winners include SAIF policyholders Leatherman Tool Group, Inc., Samaritan, Craft Brew Alliance, Eugene Water and Electric Board, and Permanente Dental Association.
Earlier this month, SAIF placed first in its size category for the Portland Business Journal's Healthiest Employer in Oregon awards. This is the eighth year SAIF has finished in the top three.
SAIF has more than 1,000 employees, with regional offices in Salem, Bend, Eugene, Medford, North Bend, and Portland.
