CHICAGO, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- ComPsych recently announced the gold winners of the third-annual Health at Work Award: Sprint; Erie Insurance; City of Naperville, Ill. and Green Hills Public Library District.

"Employers are taking a much more hands-on approach to wellness in their quest to contain health costs," said Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, chairman and CEO of ComPsych. "This year's entries showed a great deal of ingenuity, with programs aimed at both getting employees involved and keeping them engaged. Employers also have brought together new specialized staff, outside vendors and internally created programs and synthesized all of these components to work toward employee health improvement and cost reductions.
