November 23, 2020 – The American Heart Association has announced that TLC has earned Silver recognition in the 2020 Workplace Health Achievement Index, which only 29% of companies being considered achieved. This recognition demonstrates TLC’s continuing effort of improving an existing culture of health and wellness in the workplace.
TLC ‘s 2020-2025 Strategic Plan supports optimizing the emotional, social, and spiritual well-being of employees. Quarterly, TLC shareholders meet in small groups to refine and implement ways to build better teams. TLC CEO Michael Sheerin sets a positive example by actively participating in wellness events that include TLC’s Maintain, Don’t Gain challenge and activity driven events and contests. TLC has experienced increased staff participation year after year in wellness initiatives.
TLC’s Managing Principal of Human Resources, Aimee Weiner, stated “TLC has visionary leaders who continue to navigate through the deep currents of the pandemic while monitoring future impact on our firm. They update employees on a continual basis. Several firm-wide “Ask Us Anything” sessions have provided employees the opportunity to share their concerns and hear management’s thoughts. I’m proud to work for a family-friendly firm who has a solid reputation in the market and continues to achieve high wellness and health initiatives.”
The American Heart Association, a global force for longer, healthier lives, created the Index with its CEO Roundtable, a leadership collaborative of more than 45 members from some of America’s largest companies who are committed to applying evidence-based approaches to improve their employees’ overall health. The Index is a web-based scorecard that looks at organizational best practices and aggregates employee health data to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of workplace health programs. Studies show that worksites with a culture of health with comprehensive, evidence-based policies and programs, and senior leadership support are more likely to have engaged employees and a healthier, more productive workforce.
