Posted on March 10, 2011. Filed under: -- Austin Related, -- Uncategorized, health, Texas | Tags: , , , , , |

The Austin Business Journal recently gave out their Healthiest Employer awards for 2011, and below are the results.

1. Dell Inc.

Dell has about 15,000 local employees and ranks #1 for the healthiest large employer in Central Texas. They do things a little differently than most. For example, they have a hotline staffed by a nurse for employees to call regarding health problems for themselves or family members (I actually used to work for Dell and have used this hotline before and loved it). They also have a health plan that enables employees to lower their premiums if they record more than 150 minutes of exercise a week and have lower body fat ratios and healthy blood pressure readings. Dell even partnered with WebMD to establish an online portal for employees to get medical advise, guage their health and even track health insurance accounts. The list goes on and on with what they offer their employees.

2. Tokyo Electron

3. National Instruments Corp.

4. Travis County

5. Seton Family of Hospitals

6. The Scooter Store

7. Applied Materials Inc.

8. City of Austin

9. Atmos Energy Corp

10. Lower Colorado River Authority

11. Edward Jones

12. Life Technologies Corp.

13. Maximus Inc.

Results for MEDIUM Companies in Central Texas

1. Frost Insurance

At Frost Insurance, employees monitor pedometers clipped to their belts or shoes EVERY DAY! The tiny devices track the number of steps taken, miles traveled and even calories burned. They then upload this information to a website that tracks their achievments and tells them how close they are to reaching incentives such as cash and gift cards, and shows them where they rank with “office bragging rights.”

The program is so popular at work that 3 of 4 participating employees goes to their website more than 100 times per year. The pedometer program is just a driver to get people to the customized wellness website for health improvement, and it seems to be working.
