The results of the American Heart Association 2021 Workplace Health Achievement Index were announced and PSECU achieved national Gold Level recognition for taking significant steps to build a culture of health and well-being for its workforce.
PSECU is one of more than 450 organizations nationwide that completed the Index assessment this year, evaluating the time period of July 31, 2020 to June 30, 2021.
PSECU, Pennsylvania’s largest credit union, has approximately 700 employees throughout Pennsylvania. Dedicated to helping its more than 500,000 members achieve more, PSECU invests in employee health and wellness programs and incentives, understanding the impact that holistic wellness approaches can have on employees and workplace effectiveness.
The American Heart Association, a global force for longer, healthier lives for all, created the Index with its CEO Roundtable, a leadership collaborative of more than 45 members from some of America’s largest companies. The Index is a web-based scorecard that evaluates the overall quality and comprehensiveness of a company’s workplace health program through a combination of best practices and a snapshot of a company’s aggregate employee heart health.
According to CDC studies, healthy employees are more productive and use less sick time. Studies also indicate that organizations that create a culture of health in the workplace can improve employee retention and organizational reputation.
“We are proud to achieve this recognition from the American Heart Association for prioritizing the health and well-being of our employees,” said George Rudolph, PSECU President & CEO. “Our organization remains committed to supporting the physical and mental well-being of our workforce, promoting and recognizing the importance of both personal and professional growth.”
