CEO Matt Houghton and CFO Valentina Araneda were recently featured in an article by BC Business on wellness in the workplace.
The article highlights the following:
Talk to anyone at GroupHEALTH for more than a few minutes and it becomes clear that this third-party group insurance provider (one of the largest in Canada, in fact) is driven by a corporate culture that encourages staff to participate in exercise and wellness activities.
And if they’re not exercising, they’re promoting healthy living, as well as learning about new aspects of wellness.
It’s a classic case of walking the walk as well as talking the talk. GroupHEALTH, which began as a home-based group insurance broker, offers groundbreaking coverage (including employee wellness services along with extended health, life and disability coverage), plan designs and administration solutions that put Canadian businesses back in control of their benefits. So it follows that its 500-strong staff members are at the top of their game—and pursuing a healthy lifestyle is one way to maintain their energy and productivity.
Health and wellness has also helped GroupHEALTH change the image of benefit companies and create truly innovative services for its clients.
Leaders in employee benefits plans and group insurance, the GroupHEALTH Family of Companies has more than 500 employees in offices in Vancouver, Surrey, Calgary, Edmonton, Etobicoke, Woodbridge and Barrie. With annual premiums in excess of $500 million and pension assets under management in excess of $5 billion, GroupHEALTH insures more than 4,000 client organizations across Canada in both the public and private sectors, supporting more than 450,000 Canadians and their families.
