Duke Realty’s commitment to the health of its employees, as well as its overall wellness culture, has garnered recognition from the business community. Healthiest Employers has honored Duke Realty as one of Central Ohio’s most committed companies when it comes to creating and maintaining a healthy workplace. Duke Realty was one of ten companies honored in the large company category (those having 500 or more employees).
The 2015 award is based on a 60-question assessment with over 600 data points in six different categories: culture and leadership commitment; foundational components; strategic planning; communication and marketing; programming and interventions; and reporting and analysis. These criteria reward companies that show depth of dedication to the health of their employees, as well as tangible, widespread results.
Duke Realty’s promotion of a wellness culture and its support of healthy diet and exercise contributed to this honor. The web-based Vitality program is also important and has helped employees company-wide make smart wellness choices and commit to a healthy lifestyle.
