The Beacon Mutual Insurance Company was recognized with a 2019 Exemplary Worksite Health Award from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) and the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce (the Chamber) for effective programs encouraging employee health and well-being in a meaningful way.
"At Beacon Mutual, we're committed to promoting a culture of health for all employees. We invest in the development and welfare of our employees who are the foundation of our success. As an employer we offer a healthy work life balance, excellent benefits, challenging assignments and projects, and the opportunity to make a difference."
The Beacon Mutual Insurance Company was one of close to 60 Rhode Island businesses honored by BCBSRI and the Chamber with a Worksite Health Award at a breakfast attended by hundreds of state business leaders. The event celebrated local businesses who have demonstrated a commitment to improving Rhode Islanders’ overall health through innovative wellness programs, as companies and individuals.
“As a not-for-profit committed to the health of all Rhode Islanders, we’re delighted to continue our partnership with the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce as presenting sponsor of the 25th annual Worksite Health Awards,” said Melissa Cummings, executive vice president and chief customer officer of BCBSRI. “This event includes the opportunity to learn from each other’s successes and this year we have launched a new opportunity to highlight wellness achievers, companies that have taken unique, innovative and creative approaches to prioritizing wellness and helping employees achieve and maintain their health goals.”
Laurie White, president of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce, has been supportive and said, "By increasing morale and production, and decreasing healthcare costs and sick leave, worksite health programs are a win for all involved. We applaud The Beacon Mutual Insurance Company for making the commitment to invest in the wellness of their team and for inspiring more Rhode Island businesses to find creative ways to help their employees live better, healthier and happier lives. We encourage other companies to follow their lead.”
