For the fifth consecutive year, Yeo & Yeo CPAs & Business Consultants has been selected as one of Michigan’s Best and Brightest in Wellness. The program highlights companies, schools, and organizations that promote a culture of wellness, as well as those that plan, implement and evaluate efforts in employee wellness to make their business and their community a healthier place to live and work.
“Over the last five years, we have seen incredible improvement in the overall health of our employees,” said Thomas E. Hollerback, president and CEO of Yeo & Yeo. “This award is an exciting achievement for Yeo & Yeo, and our commitment to the health of our employees goes hand in hand with their results and accomplishments.”
Yeo & Yeo supports wellness for its employees by paying a large portion of healthcare premiums, helping to keep costs low for employees. The firm has a high percentage of participation in its wellness plan and 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. Yeo & Yeo also offers an Ergonomic Standing Desk option for employees, for a healthier work environment. The firm facilitates convenient onsite health screenings for healthcare participants at each of its eight office locations, offers onsite flu shots at no cost, and provides an Employee Assistance Program that offers confidential guidance and resources designed to support work‐life balance.
Nominees were evaluated by using an assessment created and administered by SynBella, the nation’s leading wellness provider. Criteria for selection included wellness programs and policies, culture and awareness, leadership, participation and incentives, communication and measurement, among others. A total of 429 companies and organizations were nominated for the award. Of those organizations, 220 completed the entire selection process, and 97 winners were chosen.
Yeo & Yeo will be honored at a symposium and awards celebration on October 5 at The Henry Hotel in Dearborn.
