Watertown, MA – Tufts Health Plan received the Bronze-level recognition from the American Heart Association as part of its annual Workplace Health Achievement Index. The Index recognizes employers that build a culture of health in the workplace. 

“As a health plan, health and wellness are deeply rooted in our mission. We believe that a commitment to health starts with our employees and extends into the communities we serve,” said Kris Martel, vice president of Human Resources at Tufts Health Plan. “We are honored to receive this recognition, as it’s a testament to the work we do to support our employees living healthier lifestyles.” 

The Index scores organizations on a science-based assessment of overall quality and comprehensiveness of workplace health programs based on seven best practices – leadership, engagement, programs, policies and environment, partnerships, communications, and reporting outcomes.

The American Heart Association has defined best practices for employers to use to build a culture of health for their employees in the workplace. The American Heart Association’s Workplace Health Achievement Index measures the extent to which the company has implemented those workplace health best practices. Companies recognized at the Bronze level have achieved an Index score of 86 – 129 out of a maximum 217 points.
