award honors randstad US for workplace wellness
ATLANTA – January 28, 2021– Cigna has selected Randstad USA as a recipient of their annual Cigna Well-Being Award for demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the health and well-being of its employees through a workplace wellness program.
Cigna Well-Being Award applicants are evaluated based on the core components of their well-being program, including leadership engagement, company culture, strategy and goals, implementation, and employee engagement. All applications are scored and reviewed by a panel of Cigna health promotion experts.
“Randstad has been on our wellness journey for several years and we are proud to support the well-being of our team,” said Pam Grant, VP of Human Resources, Randstad USA. “We take a human forward approach in everything we do at Randstad and are committed to developing more opportunities to foster holistic wellness for our employees in the years to come.”
Randstad USA was specifically recognized for RandstadGo, its corporate-wide employee wellness program. The program aims to develop a culture of wellness and to improve and maintain employees’ and their families’ overall health and well-being by offering technology, programs, and resources that will maintain and expand Randstad USA’s culture of total wellbeing.
“At Randstad USA, we have continued to prioritize taking care of one another, and we are honored to be selected as a recipient of the Cigna Well-Being Award,” said Bob Lopes, Chief Human Resources Officer, Randstad North America. "We understand the important role employee well-being plays in a company’s success and the relationship between a more productive, satisfied workforce and business performance.”
While poor health takes a toll on workers, it is also a burden to employers. A national Resilience Study from Cigna found that two-thirds of full-time employees are at risk of not being able to overcome challenges, which can result in lower job satisfaction, lower performance, and higher turnover. Employers can help build resilience in their workforce by emphasizing holistic health management, and by offering tools and resources including wellness programs.
“Cigna is a leader in improving employee health, and we are honored to recognize good partners like Randstad USA who share our commitment to workplace wellness. Creating a healthy work environment is a rising focus and many employers are seeing lower health care costs as a result of wellness initiatives,” the company stated.
