Quest Diagnostics earns ‘Best Employer for Healthy Lifestyles’ honor

The National Business Group on Health (NBGH) has awarded its 2010 “Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles” Platinum Award to Quest Diagnostics. The 2010 award, in recognition of our HealthyQuest employee wellness initiative, marks the second consecutive year we have earned the prestigious Platinum distinction, the NBGH’s highest honor. Quest Diagnostics was honored with Gold Awards in 2008 and 2007 and Silver Awards in 2006 and 2005, and is one of only six companies to earn NBGH Best Employer recognition in each year of the program since its inception.

The “Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles” awards recognize those employers taking measurable action to improve worker health, productivity and quality of life. Since 2005, the Quest Diagnostics HealthyQuest employee wellness initiative has focused on fostering a workplace culture that encourages healthy behaviors, and has helped employees to measurably lower their health risks by adopting healthier lifestyles.

The National Business Group on Health is the nation’s only non-profit organization devoted exclusively to representing large employers’ perspectives on national health policy issues and providing practical solutions to its members’ most important health care problems.
