Concannon, Miller & Co. is proud to announce the company was recently selected as a finalist in the Workplace Wellness category in the 2016 Lehigh Valley Business Healthcare Heroes awards program.
Employee health and well-being has long been a core value at Concannon Miller. Providing employees with a healthy work-life balance is one of our hallmarks.
“We care deeply about providing our employees with both a healthy work environment and ways to improve their personal health, and we’re honored these efforts have been recognized by the Lehigh Valley Business Healthcare Heroes awards committee,” Concannon Miller President & COO Ted Witman says.
Concannon Miller is the only small business to be selected as a Workplace Wellness finalist. The two other 2016 finalists are Lehigh Valley Health Network and Victaulic.
At Concannon Miller, employee health is given special consideration during tax season when employees work longer hours. The firm holds weekly in-office yoga sessions and also provides healthy snacks and healthy lunch alternatives.
The company’s health insurance offers significant discounts for gym memberships and there also is a company volleyball team that competes in a summer league. The firm’s office park also has a nice walking/running trail and the building has showers for employees to use post-workout.
In prior years, Concannon Miller also has provided discounted Fitbits, in-office Zumba and cross-training during tax season.
“Our employees work especially hard during tax season, so we strive to reduce their stress and boost their health as much as possible,” Concannon Miller Director of Human Resources Connie Hood says. “Also, our employees are rewarded with generous paid time off to further their work-life balance.”
Concannon Miller recently experienced an employee-led health initiative. Senior Associate Katie Moyer’s brother died from cardiac arrest as a teenager and her family has created a fund in her brother’s memory to advocate for more available defibrillators.
Concannon Miller was inspired by the Moyer family’s cause to purchase an AED for its Bethlehem headquarters. Katie also organized a CPR training class, which nine employees took part in.
Concannon Miller’s other workplace wellness initiatives also include a tobacco cessation program.
