ATLANTA, March 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BIAS Corporation, a leading Systems Integrator and Oracle Platinum Partner, has been named an Atlanta's Healthiest Employer Finalist by the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Each year, the Atlanta Business Chronicle honors companies who have stepped up with valuable health and wellness benefits for their employees with its Healthiest Employers awards event.
In 2013, BIAS launched a company-wide wellness program, BIAS Fit, with the mission of enhancing organizational and individual health by fostering healthier lifestyles through nutrition, exercise and stress reduction by example, communication and programs. The program has been an incredible success and has brought health and wellness to forefront of their company culture.
"BIAS is committed from every level in the organization to promoting wellness," said John Ezzell, BIAS Co-Founder. "Our commitment to our team is to provide a healthy environment and to encourage total health through meditation, yoga, nutrition, cooking classes, financial fitness programs, team boot camps, steps challenges, etc. Our team responds with incredible energy and creativity which is an integral part of the BIAS culture."
Select Atlanta companies were named finalists at the annual Atlanta's Healthiest Employers awards, held on February 15, 2018 at the Georgia Aquarium. Organizations were honored for their commitment to employee health, with exceptional corporate wellness programming. Finalists were evaluated across six key categories: leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communication and marketing, programming and interventions, and reporting and analytics. The assessment is comprised of more than 60 scored questions with a corresponding point value for each answer. The questions contain more than 600 data points for scoring and benchmarking.
"We are so honored to have been named an Atlanta's Healthiest Employers finalist for the fourth year in a row," said Jessica Quiroga, BIAS Fit Wellness Committee Leader. "It is truly remarkable to see the commitment from our employees and the life changes they have made because of this program. We hope to continue to educate and encourage our employees to live a healthy lifestyle. We will be back next year as a finalist - I know it!"
With a motto of Healthy life: Productive life, BIAS Fit is driven to promote their mission of living a healthy lifestyle inside and outside of the workplace to employees.

Various employee activities such as nutrition classes, yoga and boot camp classes, fitness challenges and financial wellness programs give ample opportunities for employees to engage in healthy behavior.
