INDIANAPOLIS (April 25, 2019) – Springbuk®, the leading Health Intelligence platform relied on by 2,500 employers nationwide, today announces a new partnership with FirstPerson for the 2019 Healthiest Employers® of Indiana Awards Program. FirstPerson, an innovative benefits and compensation advisory firm, has been named the presenting partner of the awards program.

Founded in 2009 in Indianapolis, the Healthiest Employers program has recognized over 10,000 employers in 45 U.S. cities. The national awards program has fostered a healthier, more productive employer community by rewarding organizations that have taken steps toward raising health awareness and serving as a resource for companies to improve their health initiatives.

“Indiana’s employer community continues to be a leading voice in the field of employee health. With partners like FirstPerson continuing to put employee health and wellbeing at the top of their priority list, we’re excited to leverage our combined expertise to help develop continuous improvement,” said Phil Daniels, co-founder of Springbuk and Healthiest Employers.

Also returning as a promotional partner is Indiana Sports Corp a nonprofit organization that promotes wellbeing through the Indiana Sports Corp Corporate Challenge, a community event emphasizing healthy lifestyles, friendly competition and company camaraderie.

The partnership between Springbuk, FirstPerson and Indiana Sports Corp is driving a wholistic approach to health in corporate environments and the Indianapolis community. By empowering businesses to take control of making employees healthier while managing healthcare costs, these organizations are creating a healthier and more engaged workforce across Indiana with lasting impact.

“We are delighted to partner with Springbuk to bring Healthiest Employers back to Indianapolis,” said Bryan Brenner, founder and CEO of FirstPerson. “It’s important to honor the work innovative companies do to invest in their employees. Organizations of all sizes deserve support and recognition.”

The 2019 Healthiest Employers Program of Indiana is currently open for submission through June 30, 2019. Winners will be honored in the fall of 2019 with exact dates to be announced.
