Media Contact: 

SILVER SPRING, MD – March 6, 2024 – Cigna Healthcare has selected the ANA Enterprise as a recipient of their 2023 Gold level Healthy Workforce Designation for demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the health and vitality of its employees through a workplace well-being program. This is the second consecutive year that Cigna has awarded the ANA Enterprise this designation.

The ANA Enterprise, comprised of the American Nurses Association, the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and the American Nurses Foundation, is being recognized for deploying a robust offering of resources to support wellness initiatives as well as developing policies that reinforce a safe, healthy, and supportive work environment. In addition to program strengths, the ANA Enterprise examined programmatic opportunities to incorporate policies that focus on social determinants of health.

“At the ANA Enterprise, building and sustaining a work environment and organizational culture that supports the physical and mental well-being of our teams is embedded in the fabric of our organization and underscored by our mission and vision to support the nation’s more than 5 million registered nurses,” said Jackie Hilton, SPHR, ANA senior vice president of Human Resources and Business Services. “We are thrilled about this recognition. Our teams matter to us. Bridging the relationship between their holistic welfare and organizational success is non-negotiable. Thank you to our partners at Cigna for this honor.”

Vitality is defined as the capacity to pursue life with health, strength and energy. It is both a driver and an outcome of health and work/life engagement, and Cigna Healthcare believes it is not only essential to individuals, but also a catalyst for business and community growth. Research conducted as part of the Evernorth Vitality Index confirms that those with higher vitality experience better mental and physical health along with higher levels of job satisfaction and performance. An opportunity remains for employers as less than one in five U.S. adults report having high levels of vitality. A workplace well- being program that takes a comprehensive approach to employee health can be critical in boosting vitality and building a workforce that experiences better overall health and job productivity.

“Higher vitality is linked to a more motivated, connected, and productive workforce,” said Kari Knight Stevens, executive vice president and chief human resources officer, The Cigna Group. “Employers that foster vitality will fuel a healthier workplace and drive business and economic growth. That’s why we’re proud to recognize employers for their efforts to prioritize multiple dimensions of wellness, build a culture of health, and boost employee engagement.”

The Cigna Healthy Workforce Designation evaluates organizations based on the core components of their well-being program, including leadership and culture, program foundations and execution, policies and accommodations, and additional areas. Organizations recognized with this designation set the standard of excellence for organizational health and vitality. Cigna Healthcare is proud to honor the ANA Enterprise with the Gold level designation for having made good progress towards a healthy work culture by establishing and growing their employee well-being and engagement program.
