Date:9/10/2007

Third-annual award entries reveal wellness trends of on-staff pharmacists,

'socially interactive' wellness and a focus on healthy aging

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. Winners were selected based on their wellness program's comprehensiveness, delivery, promotion, participation rates and results achieved. ComPsych Corporation is the world's largest provider of employee assistance programs and worldwide leader in GuidanceResources(R) (EAPs, behavioral health, work-life, wellness and crisis intervention services).

"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.

"We applaud these four organizations for promoting health and wellness in the workplace, and improving the lives of employees."

Within four categories based on size, the following organizations were recognized:

Winner Category

Green Hills Public Library District Less than 100 employees

City of Naperville, Ill. 101 - 2,500 employees

Erie Insurance 2,501 - 10,000 employees

Sprint More than 10,000 employees

Some highlights of these organizations' health and wellness promotion programs include:

-- Activities that increase physical activity during the workday and

increase social interaction to improve morale and emotional health,

i.e. "take-your-coworker-to-lunch" days, fitness contests and weight

loss support groups.

-- "Scientific" approaches that include pilot programs to test

effectiveness and opinion surveys to measure employee opinions and

preferences.

-- Hiring of specialized staff, from pharmacists to fitness instructors to

disease managers specializing in diabetes.

-- Discounted or complimentary nicotine replacement therapies, including

prescription drugs and over-the-counter products.

-- Initiatives that promote healthy aging, with an emphasis on arthritis,

ergonomics and age-appropriate exercise.

The Health at Work Awards are sponsored by ComPsych and its HealthyGuidance(R) program. HealthyGuidance addresses the full continuum of emotional and physical health for employees and targets the behaviors that drive unhealthy lifestyles. For more information, visit http://www.compsych.com.
