Awards honor companies with industry-leading corporate wellness programs
SAN FRANCISCO – Sept. 30, 2011 – Research has shown that competitive health and wellness benefits help employees work harder, perform better and remain more loyal to their company. VerticalResponse Inc., a leading provider of self-service email marketing, online survey, social media, event marketing and direct mail marketing solutions for small businesses, today announced it ranked No. 9 on the Healthiest Employers in the Bay Area list in the small business (51-99 employees) category.
The rankings were revealed this morning at an awards breakfast held at the Hotel Sofitel in Redwood City, Calif.
The Healthiest Employers in the Bay Area awards, organized by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal, promote the value of workplace wellness and recognize companies who are demonstrating leadership in their employee health and wellness programs. In all, 58 companies in the Bay Area were ranked on this year's list.
"Our employees are our No. 1 asset. Their health and well-being, as well as those of their dependents, are directly linked to the collective health and growth of our company," said Janine Popick, VerticalResponse CEO. "It's great to be among top Bay Area businesses who also share these values."
According to a recent Principal Financial Well-Being Index achieving better overall health is the top reason why workers participate or would participate in a wellness benefit program. The survey confirmed that companies who invest in their employees' health and wellness are more likely to have workers who are more motivated, productive and likely to stay with their current employer.
