MBP Receives 2023 Cigna Healthy Workforce Designation

Cigna Healthcare recently selected MBP as a 2023 Silver-level Healthy Workforce Designation recipient for demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the health and well-being of its team members through a workplace wellness program.

“This is another proud moment for MBP and our award-winning Woohoo Wellness program. As MBP’s fifth consecutive year being honored by Cigna Healthcare and the second year in a row with the Silver-level Healthy Workforce Designation, this speaks louder than words about the culture MBP has created and how much we care about the well-being of our team members,” said Kara Benick, SHRM-SCP, Human Resources Manager.

“Our Wellness Committee dedicates their time, creative ideas, leadership, and genuine interest in wellness to help encourage and promote healthier lifestyles for our team members, and they continue to kick it up a notch by implementing new ways to keep team members engaged through various challenges, wellness topics, tips, and monthly initiatives,” continues Kara.

“Additionally, in 2023, MBP introduced two mental health-focused resources, the Calm app, and SupportLinc, available to all team members at no cost. This was significant, especially with mental health concerns on the rise. The support of our leadership is remarkable and one of the many reasons why our Woohoo Wellness program is so successful.”

Vitality is defined as the capacity to pursue life with health, strength, and energy. It is both a driver and an outcome of health and work/life engagement, and Cigna Healthcare believes it is not only essential to individuals but also a catalyst for business and community growth. Research conducted as part of the Evernorth Vitality Index confirms that those with higher vitality experience better mental and physical health along with higher levels of job satisfaction and performance. An opportunity remains for employers as less than one in five U.S. adults report having high levels of vitality. A workplace well-being program that takes a comprehensive approach to employee health can be critical in boosting vitality and building a workforce that experiences better overall health and job productivity.

“Higher vitality is linked to a more motivated, connected, and productive workforce,” said Kari Knight Stevens, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer of The Cigna Group. “Employers that foster vitality will fuel a healthier workplace and drive business and economic growth. That’s why we’re proud to recognize employers for their efforts to prioritize multiple dimensions of wellness, build a culture of health, and boost employee engagement.”

The Cigna Healthy Workforce Designation evaluates organizations based on the core components of their well-being program, including leadership and culture, program foundations and execution, policies and accommodations, and additional areas. Organizations recognized with this designation set the standard of excellence for organizational health and vitality. MBP was honored with the Silver-level designation for having made good progress towards a healthy work culture by establishing and growing their employee well-being and engagement program.
