Cigna names PRMI recipient of 2021 Well-Being Award
SALT LAKE CITY – December 16, 2021 – Cigna has selected Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc. (PRMI) as a recipient of its annual Cigna Well-Being Award for demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the health and well-being of its employees through a workplace wellness program.
Every organization that applies gets valuable feedback on their programs’ strengths and opportunities for improvement. Award winners get industry recognition as the gold standard for well-being.
“At PRMI, employee health is a top priority, and we are honored to be selected as a recipient of the Cigna Well-Being Award,” said Carrie Johansen, vice president of human resources at PRMI. “We understand the important role employee well-being plays in a company’s success and the relationship between a more productive, satisfied workforce and business performance.”
While poor health takes a toll on workers, it is also a burden on employers. A national Resilience Study from Cigna found that two-thirds of full-time employees are at risk of not being able to overcome challenges, which can result in lower job satisfaction, lower performance and higher turnover. Employers can help build resilience in their workforce by emphasizing holistic health management and offering tools and resources, including wellness programs.
“Cigna is a leader in improving employee health, and we are honored to recognize good partners like PRMI who share our commitment to workplace wellness,” said a Cigna representative. “Creating a healthy work environment is a rising focus, and many employers are seeing lower health care costs as a result of wellness initiatives.”
Cigna Well-Being Award applicants are evaluated based on the core components of their well-being programs, including leadership engagement, company culture, strategy and goals, implementation and employee engagement. All applications are scored and reviewed by a panel of Cigna health promotion experts.
