Service Foods Named Atlanta Business Chronicle’s No. 1 Healthiest Employer Company
The second-annual awards event honors Atlanta-area businesses that are creating healthy environments and wellness programs for their employees
ATLANTA, February 21—Service Foods, a leading provider of all-natural foods for home delivery, has again been named as one of Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Healthiest Employers. This marks the second year in a row that the company has been recognized for leading the way in workplace wellness.
Service Foods earned the title of No. 1 company in the Medium Company category during the awards program held at Loews Atlanta Hotel on February 17. Overall, the company was honored as the No. 2 organization in the Medium Company category, just behind the city of Alpharetta. Service Foods was chosen from hundreds of companies that participated in the contest, and ten 2012 Healthiest Employers were each selected in three categories: Large Company, with 500 or more employees; Medium Company, with 100-499 employees; and Small Company, with fewer than 99 employees.
Service Foods places a heavy emphasis on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, both for its clients and employees. Each team member is set up with a health professional and placed on a wellness plan designed to address their individual health concerns, such as high blood pressure or diabetes. They also have access to healthy living advice and tips from the company’s roster of registered nurses, doctors and dentists.
Furthermore, Service Foods' employees are given discounts on the company’s wide assortment of all- natural meats, poultry, seafood and organic vegetables. The discount also applies to Purely Natural Supplements, Service Foods' line of high-quality, all-natural nutritional supplements. To further support healthy choices, employees have access to free menu planning and recipes courtesy of the company's registered dietitians and all-natural chefs. Service Foods' fitness experts also provide free fitness training as part of the company's health and wellness strategy.
"Healthy living is the main focus at Service Foods, and it's not just for our clients' sake. We know how important it is for everyone to live a healthy lifestyle," said Dr. Keith Kantor, CEO of Service Foods. "We see our health and wellness programs as an investment in our employees and their families. We're all working together to improve the health of America, one family at a time."
To generate the list of Atlanta Healthiest Employers award winners, the Atlanta Business Chronicle again partnered with Healthiest Employers, a wellness technology and data research company focused on corporate wellness. Atlanta-area companies were then invited to participate in a survey that measured their workplace wellness efforts. Data from the surveys was collected and an online assessment tool measured wellness programming in six key categories: culture and leadership commitment; foundational components; strategic planning; communication and marketing; programming and interventions; and reporting and analysis.
