Western Health Advantage tied for first place in the small company category at the Sacramento Business Journal’s annual Healthiest Employers awards luncheon. This is the second year that Western Health received top honors.


“Our internal wellness program, whaFIT, short for Wellness, Health + Action FIT, has helped WHA provide best practices to employers looking to develop their own wellness programs,” said Rick Heron, Western Health Advantage Chief Marketing and Brand Officer. “We hope to encourage more of our employers to participate in Healthiest Employers and promote workplace wellness.”

Eight companies won top honors as the region's most health-conscious employers at the Sacramento Business Journal's Healthiest Employers awards. Winners and 21 finalists were chosen based on results of a survey by Healthiest Employers LLC, an Indianapolis research firm that focuses on corporate wellness. Each was scored on factors such as culture and leadership commitment, strategic planning, communication and marketing, programming and intervention, and reporting and analysis.
