Rock West’s best and most important asset is its team of employee-owners. We know that our talented and engaged people are the primary reason why we are able to provide world-class products and services to our customers. We value our team and understand that keeping a healthy environment for everyone matters.
In line with this priority, we are pleased to announce that Cigna has selected Rock West Composites as a recipient of their Silver-level Healthy Workforce Designation for demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the health and well-being of its employees through a workplace wellness program. Rock West’s program focuses on the wellbeing of the whole person, it has leadership buy-in, and it has financial commitment from the company. For example, we engage in activities and challenges around fitness, financial wellness, healthy eating, mindfulness, and career growth, just to name a few.
“We are honored to be recognized with the Cigna Healthy Workforce Designation” said Grace Hernandez, Director of Human Resources. “We understand the important role employee well-being plays in a company’s success and the relationship between healthy employees contributing to a more productive, satisfied workforce and positive business performance.”
As an employee-owned business, the entire team benefits from the enterprise’s success. Investing in an effective workplace well-being program drives value for employee-owners. Senior executives surveyed as part of an Economist Impact study commissioned by Cigna reported greater productivity, stronger staff morale and motivation, and greater retention and loyalty as the most significant business outcomes of a healthy workforce. Additionally, a Gallup Report finds that on average, companies with high employee engagement are 23 percent more profitable.
The Cigna Healthy Workforce Designation evaluates organizations based on the core components of their well-being program, including leadership and culture, program foundations, program execution, and whole person health. Organizations recognized with this designation set the standard of excellence for whole-organization health.
Rock West is proud to offer a healthy and engaging workspace for its people. Join our team if you want to be a part of this terrific group of people!
