Friday, March 24, 2023

The American Heart Association has awarded Saint Meinrad Archabbey national gold-level recognition for its commitments to employee health and well-being as measured in the Association’s 2022 Workforce Well-being Scorecard™.

The Archabbey earned gold status in 2020 and 2021, as well.

The Scorecard evaluates factors such as mental health policies, organizational well-being strategies to address burnout, health equity measures, employee financial resources and more to provide a comprehensive assessment of an organization’s culture of health.

Last year, 381 organizations completed the Scorecard, and all organizations were recognized with an achievement level of platinum (9%), gold (45%), silver (32%), bronze (9%) or completer (5%).

The American Heart Association developed the Workforce Well-being Scorecard in collaboration with scientists and industry experts to reflect the latest evidence-based science on workforce health and well-being. Research has shown that supporting the mental and physical well-being of employees is vital to driving productivity, engagement and successful business outcomes.

“We are honored to be recognized by the American Heart Association for our commitment to employee health and well-being and our continued efforts to promote a culture that cares about its coworkers,” said Wellness Director Jill Memmer.

Saint Meinrad Archabbey is a Benedictine monastery founded in 1854. The monks operate a Seminary and School of Theology, guest house and retreat program, Abbey Caskets, CareNotes, Peanut Brother and a gift shop. The Archabbey employs about 190 coworkers.
