More than 75 RI Businesses Honored at 21st Annual Worksite Health Awards


In recognition of Rhode Island employers’ successful efforts to advance employee wellness and build a healthier Rhode Island, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) and the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce (the “Chamber”) distributed Worksite Health Awards to 78 local businesses. More than 400 business leaders from around the state attended the 21st Annual Worksite Health Awards ceremony to celebrate the honorees efforts, which benefit thousands of Rhode Island employees. 

“For more than two decades, we have proudly recognized the commitment of Rhode Island businesses that invest in the health of their workforce,” said Peter Andruszkiewicz, president & CEO of BCBSRI. “The collective impact of these programs extends beyond the worksite—these programs can lead to healthier families, neighborhoods, and whole communities. By highlighting the best practices of these 78 companies, we hope to encourage other businesses to build their own worksite wellness plans to help create a healthier, more productive Rhode Island.”

"When the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce partnered with Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island to sponsor these awards more than 20 years ago, we knew there was a need to address the issue of wellness in the workplace," said Laurie White, president of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce. "Since then, the evidence has continued to support the need for these programs with proven benefits like reduced absenteeism, higher productivity, and improved employee health and morale. We are delighted to recognize this year's winning employers-and their employees-who are addressing these health issues head on."

All Rhode Island businesses are eligible to apply for Worksite Health Awards, which are awarded annually. Winners are selected based on the scale and impact of their health and wellness programs and health-oriented workplace policies after submitting proof of these programs. Some of the most impactful worksite offerings included smoking cessation programming, flu immunization clinics, blood pressure screenings and walking programs.
