Booz Allen Hamilton received Gold level recognition from the American Heart Association on the association’s newly-released Workplace Health Achievement Index. The firm has been cited for “taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace.”

Booz Allen offers comprehensive workplace well-being programs including PowerUP, a firm-wide initiative designed to promote employee wellness by offering a slew of healthy workplace options including standing and treadmill desks, stability balls, and opportunities to stretch and workout at work. Based around the Four Pillars of Wellness (Physical Well-being, Emotional Resilience, Relational Support and Intellectual Curiosity), employees are encouraged to become educated about their wellness, and take a proactive role in managing their health.

Booz Allen is a member company of the Association’s CEO Roundtable, a leadership collaborative of more than 30 CEOs from some of America’s largest companies who are committed to applying evidence-based approaches to improve their employees’ overall health. The Workplace Health Achievement Index was created in partnership with the Association’s CEO Roundtable members, and uses science-based best practices to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of their workplace health programs. A unique feature of the Index is that it calculates an average heart health score for employees of participating companies that securely submit aggregate health data.

More than 800 companies completed the Index assessment this year and, of those companies, 67% received either Gold, Silver, or Bronze recognition.

“The Index asks companies to be proactive about employee health, benefits, programs and incentives,” said Terry Lundgren, Executive Chairman of Macy’s Inc. and Co-Chairman of the AHA CEO Roundtable. “By challenging participating companies to actively prioritize employees’ health and wellbeing – we can effectively build a culture of health and wellness across America.”
