Erie Insurance was among 52 employers that received the Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles award at the Leadership Summit sponsored by the National Business Group on Health's (NBGH) Institute on the Costs and Health Effects of Obesity. Erie Insurance received a Gold award for its Healthy Directions program. This is the second time Erie has received an award.

"Erie Insurance has a long history of commitment to health promotion and recently dedicated a full-time wellness expert to administering the program," said Barbara Stapf, assistant vice president of Benefits and Compensation. "We are proud of our employees and the healthy choices they are making. Erie Insurance will strive to continue providing our employees and their families the best possible tools for healthy lifestyles."

Erie Insurance's worksite wellness program, Healthy Directions, was established to provide employees with the means to lead healthier lives. A wide range of wellness education and health management programs are available to employees in 23 locations who voluntarily participate. These include lunchtime and after-hours exercise classes, indoor and outdoor walking programs, corporate discounts to fitness facilities, lunch and learn programs, and workday stretch breaks.

"We are very pleased to honor Erie Insurance for their innovation and commitment to providing lifestyle improvement programs designed to encourage healthier lifestyles for their employees," said Helen Darling, president of the NBGH. "Erie Insurance and its management team should be proud of both their initiatives and ongoing support of helping employees to choose a healthier way of life."

Now in its fourth year, the Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles awards acknowledge and reward those employers that recognize the urgent need to improve their workers' health, productivity and quality of life. The underlying goal of the program is to serve as a catalyst to encourage all employers to take action.

Winners of the Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles awards were honored in one of three categories: Platinum, for established programs with measurable outcomes; Gold, for creating cultural and environmental changes that support employees who have made a commitment to long-term behavior changes; and Silver, for those employers who have launched significant programs or services to promote living a healthier lifestyle.
