Kaiser Permanente among Healthiest Employers in Bay Area

Kaiser Permanente is among the healthiest places to work in the Bay Area, according to the results in this year’s “Healthiest Employers” poll by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal.

Kaiser Permanente ranked third among businesses with more than 2,000 employees in the 2014 poll. In each year since the poll started in 2011, Kaiser Permanente has been ranked in the Top 3 among the area’s largest businesses.

“Kaiser Permanente is the national leader in preventive health care, and we practice that prevention every bit as faithfully with our physicians and staff as we do with our members and patients,” said Gay Westfall, senior vice president for Human Resources, Kaiser Permanente Northern California. “In our ‘Live Well Be Well’ program to encourage employee wellness, we make it a priority to provide our employees and physicians with the support and resources they need to live healthier, happier lives.”

In all, 82 companies of all sizes took part in this year’s survey.
