ARAMARK, a provider of professional services, has been honored by the National Business Group on Health as one of the nation's leading corporations for innovative programs promoting a healthy workplace, and for helping its employees and their families make better choices about their own health and well-being.

ARAMARK, which employs more than a quarter of a million people globally, was among a select group of employers that received the Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles award at the Joint Summit of the Institutes on Health Care Costs and Solutions. ARAMARK received a Silver Award for its “ARAMARK Take Care” health and wellness program.

“At ARAMARK, we understand that we have both a responsibility and the expertise to help educate, enable and encourage people of all ages to adopt healthier eating practices and more active lifestyles,” said Lynn McKee, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, ARAMARK. “Investing in the health and wellness of our employees underscores our commitment to our people, who are the cornerstone of ARAMARK's business. A healthy, positive workforce is well positioned to better serve our clients and customers.”

ARAMARK's Commitment to Health and Wellness
One of ARAMARK's top priorities has long been the health and satisfaction of its employees, as well as the customers it serves each day.

Because ARAMARK touches millions of customers around the world each day, the company is well positioned to have a positive impact on the dining and healthy lifestyle choices of a broad audience of consumers. Throughout its operations, ARAMARK uses its knowledge, culinary expertise, and consumer access to empower healthier environments, experiences and outcomes. ARAMARK offers healthy food and beverage options to address nutrition and dietary priorities; promotes awareness through health and wellness education and outreach programs; conducts consumer research to study food, nutrition and health trends; and partners with leading nonprofit and governmental organizations to make a greater impact on public health.

ARAMARK also works to build healthier communities through ARAMARK Building Community, a program that builds long-term partnerships to strengthen and support community centers across the country. Through this initiative the company is sharing its expertise and resources in nutrition and wellness to help educate families on how to live a healthier lifestyle and adopt better eating habits.

“As one of the companies recognized this year for their employee health and wellness programs, ARAMARK is at the vanguard of a national movement to promote a system-wide culture of health emphasizing prevention, exercise, and eating right,” said Helen Darling, President of the National Business Group on Health. “More than ever, a healthy workforce is critical to helping America's large employers compete in the global marketplace. ARAMARK is to be applauded for making health and wellness an integral part of their workplace.”
