Hebrew SeniorLife Honored as One of the Healthiest Employers in Massachusetts

Robust Wellness Program Key to Employee Performance and Satisfaction

BOSTON – Hebrew SeniorLife has been recognized as one of the Healthiest Employers of Massachusetts. The awards program, powered by Springbuk and hosted by First Person, was created to honor people-first organizations that recognize the importance of their employees’ well-being. Companies are recognized because of their commitment to workplace wellness and their exceptional health and benefits offerings.

Award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Culture and Leadership, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analytics. Assessments were ranked with a Healthiest Employers Index, a 1-100 scoring for wellness programming.

“Hebrew SeniorLife is totally committed to keeping its employees safe and healthy,” said Dawn Damiano, Employee Wellness Program Manager. “Our LiveWELL program includes everything from virtual yoga, mindfulness, and Zumba classes to helping our employees with fun, innovative ways to lose weight and manage their stress. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we have gone virtual with our classes instead of in-person, but we also have increased our offerings knowing how critical it is for our staff to maintain both their physical and mental health.”

As a finalist in the Healthiest Employers Award program, Hebrew SeniorLife prides itself in caring about its employees and ensuring their health and their families’ health. Its LiveWELL program has been in place for seven years, and continues to be even more popular this year during these challenging times.
