CLEVELAND ... Power management company Eaton today announced the company has been recognized among the “2015 Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles®.” The National Business Group on Health presented Eaton with a Platinum award for exemplary workplace well-being programs, cultures and results at a Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. sponsored by the National Business Group on Health’s Institute on Innovation in Workforce Well-being.
 
Eaton was one of 26 employers that received the Platinum distinction for its ongoing commitment and dedication to promoting a healthy work environment through its Powering You to Live Well program.
 
“Our wellness strategy is part of Eaton’s commitment to doing business right. We’ve integrated our approach to wellness as an important part of our culture,” said Cindy Brabander, Eaton’s executive vice president and chief human resources officer. “We’re thrilled to again be recognized by the National Business Group on Health as we continue to deliver the tools and environment to empower our employees to live longer, healthier lives.”

In the U.S., program objectives include significantly reducing Eaton’s overall health care costs over five years while managing costs and providing employees and family members best-in-class health management programs. Globally, Eaton believes that its wellness strategy promotes a healthier, more productive workforce and enables the company to be an employer of choice.
