PECKHAM IN ACTION

Lansing, MI- Peckham has been named as one of Michigan’s Best and Brightest in Wellness, a program that recognizes companies that promote employee wellbeing, worksite health and wellness. Winning companies are evaluated on best practices, along with health and wellness benchmarking standards in the industry.

“The Best and Brightest is a powerful community of elite leaders who share ideas, practices, and have proven they are employers of choice when it comes to wellness and wellbeing,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs. “Best and Brightest winning companies are a community of leaders dedicated to creating a sustainable culture that works and ensuring the wellbeing of their employees come first.”

“Emphasizing wellbeing and health has always been an intentional focus at Peckham,” said Justin Walworth, Chief of Human Resources. “Investing in things such as fitness centers at our facilities, free access to therapy, financial incentives and supportive training for improving health and more, are all ways we facilitate our employees’ overall wellbeing and create a culture of wellness.”

The 2022 winning companies were evaluated by an assessment created and administered by a leading wellness systems firm. Entries were examined statistically for quantitative and qualitative data. Each survey was scored on a point system based upon criteria to benchmark and improve wellness program effectiveness. Criteria included outcomes, analysis, tracking, participation & incentives, benefits and programs, leadership, employee input, culture and environment.
