Yeo & Yeo CPAs & Business Consultants has been named one of Michigan’s Best and Brightest in Wellness, an initiative that recognizes and celebrates quality and excellence in worksite health. The program highlights companies that promote a culture of wellness, and those that plan, implement, and evaluate efforts in employee wellness.
“We are committed to the health and wellness of our employees, and our goal is to help them be empowered to make real changes in their health and lifestyle behaviors,” said Thomas E. Hollerback, president and CEO of Yeo & Yeo. “We are honored by this recognition and committed to continued advances in our wellness programs.”
Yeo & Yeo supports wellness for its employees by offering a gold level healthcare plan and paying a large portion of the premiums, helping to keep costs low for employees. The firm has a high percentage of participation in its wellness plan/healthcare premium reduction incentive. Another initiative is the firm’s Fitbit Fitness Program. Themed, monthly challenges for individuals and teams, along with prizes and friendly competition, have resulted in a high level of participation. The firm also provides free flu shots.
Nominees were evaluated by a selection committee of leading healthcare and wellness professionals.

A total of 300 companies and organizations were nominated for the award. Of those organizations, 142 completed the entire selection process, and 76 winners were chosen.
