Wright-Way-To-Wellness Program Earns Healthiest Employer Award

Wright-Pierce, an employee-owned, multidisciplinary environmental engineering firm has been recognized for a strong commitment to employee health and corporate wellbeing. The 200-person company has earned two awards; the Exemplary Worksite Health Award from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) and the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce; and The Healthiest Employers Award by Healthiest Employer, LLC, an Indiana limited liability company in association with the Providence Business News (PBN), an affiliate of American City Business Journals, Inc.

These awards recognize Wright-Pierce for the success of the company’s "Wright Way to Wellness” program initiated five years ago. The program, led by Wellness Ambassadors at each of the company’s eight offices, educates and motivates Wright-Pierce employees to improve their health. The Wellness program offers a variety of health incentives including fitness reimbursements, on-site flu clinics, wellness coaches, health fairs, biometric screening as well as company-sponsored recreational events.

According to Director of Human Resources, Connie Taggart "Wright-Pierce is committed to being proactive about the health of our employees. Creating and supporting a culture of health awareness is to everyone’s advantage. Healthy,  engaged employees are more productive, empowered workers and happier people. Our Wright Way to Wellness program yields benefits in multiple ways. We are proud to be recognized for this commitment.”
