Ragan honors the 2023 Workplace Wellness Awards and Workplace Wellness Hot List in Colorado: list of winners

Winners were celebrated at a special awards luncheon in Colorado on August 15.

The 2023 Workplace Wellness Awards and Workplace Wellness Hot List celebrated an impressive group of finalists who, during a year when employees who continued to be remote, displaced demonstrated untold wellness challenges, managed to cultivate programs and initiatives that put employee wellbeing front and center. We applaud the organizations and solutions providers who made such a substantial difference in the lives of clients and employees alike.

Ragan Communications hosted an awards luncheon on August 15th at Chicago’s Grand Hyatt, where attendees were excited to share wellness tips and stories.

“This year’s Ragan’s Workplace Wellness Awards finalists demonstrate how organizations can take a holistic approach to wellness that helps people bring their whole selves to work,” says Ragan CEO Diane Schwartz. “By embracing programs that consider how employees’ mental, physical, social and financial health work in tandem, these organizations prove that the right workplace wellness benefits can boost morale and culture while also bringing lasting, measurable productivity and growth to the business.”

Ragan congratulates this inspiring group of wellness leaders.
