Castlight Health Recognized as 2017 Bay Area Healthiest Employer

September 14, 2017

San Francisco – September 14, 2017 – Castlight Health has been recognized as a winner of the 2017 Healthiest Employers, an awards program presented by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Castlight Health is a San Francisco-based company that helps large employers and their employees improve the entire health journey by regaining control over rising healthcare costs and getting more value from their benefits through a comprehensive health navigation platform.

Select employers from the Bay Area were named winners of the awards program, held on September 8, 2017. These winning organizations were honored for their commitment to employee health, with exceptional corporate wellness programming.

Award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Wellness Program, Culture and Leadership, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Foundational Components and Programming and Interventions. Completed assessments were ranked with the proprietary Healthiest Employer Index, a 1-100 metric for wellness programming.

“We’re proud to be recognized as one of the Bay Area’s Healthiest Employers. Our mission is to make it as easy as humanly possible to navigate healthcare and live happier, healthier and productive lives–so it is our top priority to retain, develop and care for our own employees,” said Vicki Ryan, Chief People Officer at Castlight Health. “Our team is unified by our promise to improve healthcare and wellbeing for millions of Americans, but we could never deliver on this without our unwavering commitment to the health and wellbeing of those that make Castlight possible.”

Castlight Health’s employees, and their spouses and dependents can take advantage of the company’s health navigation platform that combines total well-being capabilities, care guidance tools, and a personalized engagement hub.
