Agenda Item #7
Tampa Bay Business Journal Healthiest Employer Award
Contact and/or Presenter Information
Accept award from the Tampa Bay Business Journal
For the second time in four years, the Tampa Bay Business Journal has named Manatee County Government the healthiest employer in the region. The Manatee YourChoice health plan was named tops in the region from among hundreds of employers from seven counties during the Journal’s 2014 Healthiest Employer awards earlier this year.
About 2,000 Manatee County health plan participants have lost nearly 17,000 pounds, or nearly 8.5 tons of weight in two years since the start of YWeight, a program that incentivizes exercise and longterm weight loss. That has led to a decrease in preventative type II diabetes and reductions in cholesterol and blood pressure for Manatee County health plan members.
