Interactive Health Honors Maritz with Healthiest Companies in America Distinction

June 21, 2016

We are thrilled to announce Interactive Health, our wellness partner, has named Maritz one of the Healthiest Companies in America. Maritz is one of only 154 companies across the country being recognized for helping our employees make significant and sometimes life-saving changes to improve their health.

Based on concrete results our employees achieved to maintain and improve their overall health, this recognition validates everybody’s hard work and commitment to a worthy goal – better health and better lives.

Over the last three years, our company has made significant strides in improving our health benefits program. Each member of our team across the nation has access to walking programs, annual health screenings and health coaches. In addition, our headquarters office in Fenton offers our people access to a wellness room, a walking map with various mileage routes across campus, an on-site physician’s office, and healthy food options in our cafeteria.

This program -- along with each employee’s personal commitment to improving health -- has led to significant improvements in the overall well-being of our people. Our employees have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and have improved smoking habits.

“We have completed our third year of health evaluations, and the results are showing that our wellness program has a positive impact on our employees. In 2015, 47 percent of our participants that were in the high risk category moved to a lower risk category,” stated Karen Staten, Maritz benefits director. “Receiving the 2015 Healthiest Companies Award is a testament to the efforts of our participants to improve their overall health status.”

Interactive Health’s workplace wellness programs transform companies and their employees by helping people understand how they can improve their health. Here at Maritz, we take pride in offering our employees benefits that help them in achieving better health. We stand alongside the other 153 winners and say congratulations to all the employees who are making positive changes in their lives through wellness.
