Emory among city's healthiest employers

Atlanta's Healthiest EmployeesEmory University and Emory Healthcare were named among Atlanta's Healthiest Employers.

The new award, sponsored by the Atlanta Business Chronicle, honors companies who are doing the most to keep their workforce healthy and supporting a healthy lifestyle.

Emory was ranked as the fourth healthiest employer in the large company category (500+ employees). The Faculty Staff Assistance Program (FSAP), the onsite pharmacy and fitness centers, and partnerships for health and wellness across campus were cited in winning the award.

The University/Healthcare programs were showcased in a special Atlanta Business Chronicle section and illustrated with a photograph of Emory employees learning CPR.

Eddie Gammill, manager of wellness programs for FSAP, says, “As healthcare costs continue to rise, the link between individual physical and emotional health, risk reduction, behavioral change and outcome measures continues to be critical in the design and evaluation process of our wellness initiatives."
