Why does MBGH member First Horizon invest so heavily in the health of their employees? CEO Bryan Jordan puts it this way, "Our employees are our competitive advantage so we invest in programs
designed to encourage them and their family members to lead healthy
lifestyles, and they've responded enthusiastically," As you will see, First Horizon has implemented a comprehensive program to support this belief.
July 4 last year, the company declared its independence from tobacco
and implemented smoke-free campuses so there is no smoking any where on
First Horizon property. The move enabled First Horizon to be accredited
with the CEO Cancer Gold Standard.
This accreditation recognizes First Horizon’s overall commitment to
reducing the risk of cancer in the workplace through lifestyle change,
early detection and access to quality care.MBGH members can get copies of the materials First Horizon used to communicate this program to their employees as well as First Horizon's tobacco cessation benefit plan on our Tobacco Cessation Benefits Tools & Solutions page.
This year, First Horizon was recognized nationally for providing a Psychologically Healthy Workplace Best Practice for their myPLAN performance management program. And, on the state level, the financial services company won the Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award for
the state of TN. Memphis Business Group on Health recruited First
Horizion to apply for both of these special recognition opportunities.
In First Horizon's Virgin Health
Miles program, employees wear digital pedometers
to track their activity levels and get regular biometric screenings. Employees can
earn up to $600 a year by participating
in the program. First Horizon also sponsors Weight Watchers at Work, mobile
mammography, seasonal flu shots, lunch and learns with wellness topics, and a
telephone-based health coaching program.
For First Horizon, employee health is an investment and a key business strategy.
