At Kohler Co., we believe happy, healthy associates and their families make stronger, healthier communities, and the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA), a leader for workplace wellness, couldn’t agree more.
WELCOA, one of the nation’s premier resources helping to build top-performing, healthy workplaces, has awarded Kohler its highest honor as part of its 2020 Well Workplace Awards. Of the 16 businesses and organizations recognized, Kohler was one of three to receive a Platinum distinction for meeting a rigid set of workplace wellness criteria.
According to WELCOA, what set Kohler apart from other applicants was our ability to not only deliver a comprehensive wellness program tied to the strategic goals of the business, but how our one-size-doesn’t-fit-all approach to well-being supports and allows all associates to thrive. Kohler’s four dimensions of well-being—physical health, mental & emotional, financial, and meaning & purpose—provide associates with the opportunity to choose what’s most meaningful. As part of Kohler’s application, WELCOA was impressed by Kohler’s diverse range of well-minded employee opportunities from Business Resource Groups and Stewardship outreach to Sustainability and Safe Water for All initiatives, together working to create an environment where associates rally behind what matters most to them.
And what matters to associates is supported by Kohler Co. Here’s just a few experiences that keep associates well—mind, body and spirit:
“As member of the Wellness Committee at Kohler, I find it allows me to be who I am.
