In 2017, Dana was named one of the Healthiest Companies in America by Interactive Health, a leading wellness provider of health management solutions for the workplace. The criteria for this award is based on data from individual health evaluations and includes: a participation rate of 70 percent or more; at least 40 percent of high-risk individuals migrating to a lower-risk category; at least 42 percent of moderate-risk individuals improving health status; and a low aggregate company health score.
Individuals must choose their path to overall well being, and Dana recognizes that one size does not fit all. Therefore, a variety of engagement opportunities throughout the year are available. These include monthly wellness activities, vendor support, education, and access to personal health coaches. Dana also offers tools to empower employees to be smarter healthcare consumers and provides incentives for participating in preventive care.
These opportunities address the individual approach to personal health and well being. Dana continues to evolve and increase opportunities to proactively connect and engage employees in overall well being. Breaking down barriers and building a culture of wellness will lead to healthier outcomes.
All of these approaches and programs address the various needs and learning styles of Dana people to better understand Dana’s values and provide an environment for professional growth and interpersonal behaviors that help create the high-performance, inclusive, collaborative, and engaged culture Dana continuously strives for.
