WYOMISSING, PA. – Customers Bank, a leading super-community bank with operations in Pennsylvania, District of Columbia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and New England, is pleased to announce that the Philadelphia Business Journal will honor the company today as one of the 2019 Healthiest Employers in the Greater Philadelphia region. To celebrate this year’s winners, the Philadelphia Business Journal will host a special event for the healthiest employers this morning in the Ballroom at the Ben, located at 834 Chestnut Street.

The Healthiest Employers program is conducted annually by the Philadelphia Business Journal to recognize organizations that go beyond simply offering typical health benefits. Employers throughout the region are judged on multiple criteria to identify companies that best promote healthier living.

“Helping our Team Members prioritize health and well-being, and achieve an appropriate work-life balance is very important to the executive leadership team,” stated Richard Ehst, President and Chief Operating Officer of Customers Bank. “What has been truly energizing has been everyone’s interest and increased participation in the monthly health challenges we create.”

The number of Team Members who completed the Wellness Program and earned the top incentive increased from 45% to 79% over the last 12 months. Customers Bank’s program extends beyond physical health and incorporates activities and exercises to assist Team Members in achieving financial, mental, emotional and social well-being as well.

The Wellness Program has been 6 years in the making, originally started by Karen Kirchner, Director of Team Member Services and implemented by Sandy Collins, Team Member Services Learning, Communication and Wellness Manager.

Customers Bank’s program is led by volunteer Wellness Champions who engage Team Members to actively participate in workshops, webinars, monthly challenges, health quizzes and more. Team Members can also access nutritional and dietary resources, physical fitness programs, biometric screenings, health risk assessments and more as part of the Wellness Program. Personal health coaches are available to assist with weight management, stress management, tobacco cessation, life balance and other health concerns.
