INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Sports Corp is pleased to announce a partnership with their event, Indiana Sports Corp Corporate Challenge, and Indianapolis-based Springbuk to relaunch the Healthiest Employers of Indiana Award Program. This award program recognizes companies that make a commitment to promote and sustain healthy lifestyles amongst their employees.
Healthiest Employers® seeks to create a healthier, more productive community, rewards organizations that have taken steps toward raising health awareness and serves as a resource for companies to improve their health initiatives.
“Our partnership with Healthiest Employers supports our mission to make the Indiana Sports Corp Corporate Challenge the epicenter of corporate health,” said Ryan Vaughn, Indiana Sports Corp President. “Our main goal is to work towards improving the health within the corporate community of Indianapolis and recognize the efforts companies are making.”
Since 2009, more than 8,000 employers have participated across 45 cities in the nationally recognized Healthiest Employers Award Program, representing insights and best practices of more than 60,000,000 employee lives. The national award program launched in 2009, with Indiana being the very first state to host a contest.
The Indiana Sports Corp Corporate Challenge, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, is a community event that emphasizes healthy lifestyles, friendly competition and company camaraderie. The partnership between Corporate Challenge and Healthiest Employers will give the participating companies a larger platform to promote the work that they are doing inside their organizations to promote health and wellness.
“From our national vantage point, Indiana’s employer community is among the leaders in driving change in employee health. Community leaders like the Indiana Sports Corp help foster employee health and wellbeing. We’re thrilled to partner with Indiana Sports Corp to showcase Indiana’s healthiest employers, and to help share best practices so we can all improve,” said Phil Daniels, co-founder of Springbuk and Healthiest Employers®.
