okcBIZ Fittest Execs: Corporate Wellness Award

Oklahoma Blood Institute cares about its employees and goes to great lengths to help them stay healthy. Employee wellness is promoted through healthy food options in vending machines, a wellness website, free annual biometric health screenings, online and in-person health coaching, individualized case management services, gym discount memberships, weight watchers offers, tobacco cessation resources, employee challenges, a health section in the newsletter and company website and athletic sponsorship policy for participation in community health and activity-related events like fun walks and runs.

Lunch & Learn sessions, both live and online, provide resources for health and fitness, and healthy food is served at company functions. There is an added perk with a percentage end-of-year insurance premium payback for participation in year-round wellness events.

Many of OBI’s administrators participate and challenge each other to encourage and to be role models stressing the importance of healthy choices for their employees. An introduction to the Wellness Program is part of the monthly process for new hires.

Wellness Workshops cover a variety of health concerns. OBI partnered with IMWELL clinics to offer medical services for its insured employees at little to no cost for them.

With all of these perks, it’s no wonder OBI is this year’s corporate wellness winner.

its health and wellness programs. The Oklahoma City facility is equipped
with an on-site gym that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a

gardening club that grows fresh fruits and vegetables on-site. If an
employee needs help improving his or her health status, Farmers makes
that easy too by offering wellness coaching, a 24/7 nurse advice line,
oneon-one support from a registered nurse to manage a chronic condition,
an employee assistance program and on-site flu shots.

Another
great tool is the Health and Wellness website created for employees.
The website provides tips on how to stay motivated and healthy
