Fond du Lac County Named One of America’s Healthiest Companies for Seventh Consecutive Year

Post Date:03/27/2018 12:33 PM

For the seventh consecutive year, Fond du Lac County has been named as one of the “Healthiest Companies in America” by Interactive Health. This year, Fond du Lac County is one of 184 companies across the country being recognized for empowering employees to make significant and sometimes life-saving changes to improve their health. 

“Above all else, this is a remarkable testament to our employees who are going above and beyond to improve or maintain an optimal quality of life,” said County Executive Allen Buechel. 

Participants in Interactive Health’s wellness program receive a thorough health evaluation to identify risk and learn about their health status. Through a combination of rapid outreach, connection to personal physicians and tailored resources, a personalized course of action is delivered to the participant resulting in improved or maintained health. In 2017, 69% of employees and spouses achieved a low-risk health score, which earned Fond du Lac County the “Healthiest Companies in America” designation. 

“I am inspired to see how many organizations have reached this achievement this year,” said Interactive Health President and CEO Bill Goldberg. “Employees enjoy healthier lives, while employers benefit from enhanced productivity and lower healthcare costs. It’s truly a win-win combination.” 

“Our dedicated wellness committee team members work year round to offer programs and activities for the overall well-being of our entire employee population,” said Buechel. “I commend them for their efforts and contributions in achieving this outstanding designation.”
