The organization appeared on the list in the large company category of employers with 500-4,999 employees.
"We're pleased to be named one of Atlanta's healthiest employers. This distinction underscores the very intentional approach we have taken to health wellness and well-being," says Shane Jackson, president of Jackson Healthcare and author of the book Fostering Culture: A Leader's Guide to Purposefully Shaping Culture.
