This honor recognizes companies for exceptional commitment to improving employees' physical and emotional health through workplace wellness programs. Bisk was presented with the award Tuesday, Aug. 22, at the Cigna Summit at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina.

Bisk's workplace wellness program, Healthy U, inspires its more than 700 employees to make healthy choices by supporting them through physical activity classes, corporate competitions, wellness visit incentives, blood pressure screenings, gym membership discounts and weight management programs.
"Healthy U has influenced so many positive changes in my life," Bisk employee Alicia Starke said. "Through all the various programs and information they offer, I have learned how to embrace change and take control of my health."
Bisk employees use Cigna's My Health Assistant to track their wellness score to see where they need to improve, as well as to measure progress on their annual wellness visits. My Health Assistant also provides advice and resources for creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
