Nationwide Receives IBI/NBCH Healthy Workforce Productivity Award
Date:2/10/2009

Health-related work place productivity improved 22 percent as a result of My Health program

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the Integrated Benefits Institute (IBI) and the National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH) honored Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company with the 2009 IBI/NBCH Healthy Workforce Productivity Award at their Health & Productivity Forum being held February 9-11 in Los Angeles. The award, sponsored by Thomson Reuters, recognizes leadership in the area of health and productivity and honors an employer that has worked with its employees to develop, implement and measure an innovative health and productivity initiative.

"The goal of this meeting is to feature the latest practical approaches to investing in and promoting both the health and productivity of the workforce," said Thomas Parry, PhD, president of IBI, and co-host of the forum with Andrew Webber, president and CEO of NBCH. "We appreciate Nationwide sharing information on their successful program and congratulate them on this recognition."

Nationwide's My Health program is a comprehensive health and wellness program designed to promote healthy living for all of its associates. The initiative includes a health assessment, lifestyle behavior coaching, integrated absence/disability/workers' compensation/disease management, health advocacy/education, occupational health clinics, walking programs, free/discounted fitness centers and employee assistance/behavioral programs. Most important is that the program doesn't stop at health promotion, but also evaluates the lost time and productivity improvements from the interventions.

"We are pleased to accept this award and the affirmation of our commitment to improving the lives of our associates through our various health and wellness program offerings," said Kathleen Herath, associate vice president of Health & Productivity for Nationwide.
