ST. LOUIS – July 8, 2021 – Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, P.C., is pleased to announce that for the second consecutive year the firm has been recognized by the St. Louis Business Journal (SBJ) as among the St. Louis region’s “Healthiest Employers.” The firm is one of 28 finalists in the 2021 class.
Greensfelder is a finalist in the category for companies with 100 to 499 employees. The winning companies will be announced Sept. 3. Finalists were selected and the winners will be chosen by the SBJ in partnership with Indianapolis-based health intelligence software firm Springbuk, which performed employee surveys.
According to the SBJ, “As Covid-19 continued to spread over the past year, the situation further highlighted the need for wellness programs inside companies. … This year's Healthiest Employers had to find creative ways to pivot their wellness programs – like virtual games, emergency sick leave and virtual 5K runs – and they each found success in their own way.”
Greensfelder President and Chief Executive Officer Kevin T. McLaughlin said, “We are very proud of this recognition from the St. Louis Business Journal that reflects our firm’s ongoing commitment to the health and well-being of our employees.”
Last year, Greensfelder also received a 2020 Cigna Well-Being Award for the firm’s significant efforts to enhance employee wellness. Led by Greensfelder Human Resources Manager Jessie Fenton, the firm’s Well-Being Program aims to increase the overall well-being of all firm employees through opportunities in the areas of physical, financial, emotional and social health. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the firm worked to ensure that employees working remotely still had access to wellness resources, including virtual challenges and seminars and tips on setting up ergonomic workstations at home. Other program offerings have included healthy food in the offices, wellness prizes and challenges, yoga and meditation classes, and educational programs.
