Sunstone Circuits is Again Recognized as One of the Healthiest Employers of Oregon

Reading time ( words)

For the fourth consecutive year, Sunstone Circuits has been named one of the Healthiest Employers of Oregon. The awards are given annually to companies that promote the value of workplace wellness and demonstrate innovation and leadership in their wellness programs. Sunstone placed 5thout of 24 companies in the “medium sized employers” category – those with 100-499 employees.

The Portland Business Journal linked up with Indianapolis-based Healthiest Employers LLC to produce the Healthiest Employers of Oregon awards, a program designed to reward companies for innovative wellness programs and to give other businesses ideas for implementing their own worksite wellness initiatives. This year, The Business Journal honored 60 companies for their efforts to improve employee health. The Healthiest Employers/HR Summit took place on August 19, 2016, at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Portland.

“It’s so great being a part of the wellness program at Sunstone,” said Human Resources Manager Sheri Kuretich. “Our program is about creating a culture of wellness that shows true care and concern for Sunstone employees. The program facilitates and supports healthy lifestyles through initiatives that are memorable & educational, all with the hope that it inspires employees to take charge of their health in a fun, safe and sustainable way. Sunstone recognizes that a healthy person is typically happier, misses less work, and has an improved outlook on life, with an overall improved sense of well-being. Seeing measurable results and helping employees to be the best they can be is so rewarding.”

Sunstone Circuits earned this award for the fourth year in a row, by maintaining a formal wellness program to encourage healthy lifestyles. By implementing a health incentive, employees who obtain biometric readings, undergo a health risk assessment and participate in the “Wellness BINGO” challenge have the ability to receive a reduction in their health insurance premiums each month. The judges also acknowledged Sunstone’s onsite walking trail, fitness room, employee health initiatives, and company-organized participation in local running and walking events. Sunstone has had several employees who were, through the assessment and coaching process, educated on pre-stage medical conditions and have since made lifestyle changes to improve those conditions.
