Paychex Honored for Excellence in Health and Well-being
Recognized by National Business Group on Health for Offering One of the Nation’s Best Workforce Health and Well-being Initiatives
Rochester, N.Y. (September 23, 2019) – For the eighth time, Paychex, Inc. has been honored by the National Business Group on Health (“NBGH”), a non-profit association of more than 440 large U.S. employers, for providing one of the best workforce health and employee well-being organizational initiatives in the country.
Paychex is one of 50 U.S. employers that received the 2019 Best Employers: Excellence in Health & Well-Being award, presented at the NBGH’s Workforce Strategy 2019 Conference. Paychex received a gold award for its comprehensive well-being program, which supports employees across all dimensions of well-being: physical, social-emotional, financial, community, and career.
“For the past two decades, we’ve been proud to offer our employees wellness initiatives that help them be their very best,” said Laurie Zaucha, vice president of human resources and organizational development at Paychex. “This honor reflects our commitment to helping employees lead healthy lives, while also staying innovative and expanding the resources available to help them address often-overlooked areas such as financial and community well-being. By focusing on overall well-being, we help our employees to be at their best in every aspect of their lives – whether at or outside of work.”
At Paychex locations across the country, thousands of employees participate in at-work team wellness challenges held several times a year, attend annual flu shot clinics, and take advantage of an abundance of resources offered to promote the overall well-being of employees and their family members. Along with robust physical health initiatives, the company’s “PaychexCares” program encourages active volunteerism to support community well-being, award-winning learning and development programs that support career well-being, financial fitness programs and benefits to support financial well-being, and resilience and mental health initiatives that promote emotional well-being. Recently, Paychex launched a bike share program at two Rochester locations, giving nearly 2,500 employees free access to custom-designed Paychex bicycles, which they’re encouraged to take out for a spin around campus or a nearby bike trail.
Brian Marcotte, president and CEO of the National Business Group on Health commented, “Our annual awards recognize organizations that promote the overall well-being of their employees and families. Paychex is among an elite group of employers who recognize the positive impact a culture inclusive of well-being can have on their employees’ productivity and engagement. We congratulate them.”
