Arizona’s Healthiest Employers 2017
by Kenny Rhoads
Most recently, MultiTable participated in Phoenix Business Journal’s 2017 Healthiest Employers Awards, recognizing companies committed to creating a more healthy work place. Buoyed by their wellness-driven businesses, hundreds of happy employees celebrated as their employers collected kudos for a variety of health-focused programs.
The awards breakfast took place on May 4 at Sheraton Grand Downtown. Employers were recognized for various initiatives ranging from on-site fitness training and corporate participation in health events to emotional and nutritional wellness programs.
Of all the awesome companies we came to learn about, USAA and its members were surely a standout, giving us a boot camp-style good morning during their segment that was so authentic, we didn’t know whether to laugh or drop down and give ‘em 20! It was without a doubt one of the most lively of gatherings of business pros, with plenty of anecdotes and camaraderie during the festivities.
As huge advocates of the healthiest employers movement, tasked with offering relevant and timely wellness information, we love taking every opportunity we can to educate companies on the very high value standing desks bring to workplace wellness. We shared our Healthiest Employers Page, received very good reception on a new desk we will be launching this month (Stay tuned for more information!), and witnessed the genuine excitement sparked by the mention of our desk giveaway raffle. Many people we chatted with didn’t realize we were local and it was with great pride that we stood up (pun intended) as Phoenix’s very own standing desk company.
Here at MultiTable, we believe that more employees should have access to standing desks, not only those requested on doctor’s orders. Standing desks are a preventative health measure, and the many benefits are just too great for everyone not to be on board.
During the event, MultiTable gave away our new desk model to one employee who works for the 14th Healthiest Employer in the Valley, Isagenix International. Congratulations to Deborah Matthews, Vice President of HR at Isagenix International, and hats off to all of those recognized as The Valley’s Healthiest Employers!
