Zorianna Hyworon Receives International Leadership Award

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2010) - Zorianna Hyworon, President and CEO of InfoTech Inc., producer of Wellness Checkpoint®, received today, the International Leadership Award in Health & Productivity Management at the 10th Annual Institute for Health & Productivity Management (IHPM) conference in Orlando, Florida.

"Zorianna has made a substantial contribution to the advancement of health and productivity management around the world and we wanted to take this opportunity to recognize her publicly at our annual international conference", said Sean Sullivan, President & CEO of IHPM. "She has singlehandedly helped this movement grow internationally through her tireless efforts to help numerous multinational corporations assess their population health, measure the impact on productivity, and determine the best opportunities for improving both health and workplace performance. InfoTech operates in 70 countries with its Wellness Checkpoint HRA, which is available in 16 languages – making her the most international of all risk assessment and productivity measurement providers."

Wellness Checkpoint, is an online, interactive, multilingual and global health risk assessment with comprehensive reporting abilities that helps employees and their families track and improve their overall health status in their choice of 16 languages. Wellness Checkpoint adapts its delivery to cultural differences and clinical guidelines as well as client priorities and integration with corporate programs and third-party providers. It meets international and national standards and complies with appropriate privacy, security and accessibility regulations and best practices.

As the leading provider of global health risk assessment software and related decision support services for 55 of the Global Fortune 500 companies, directly or through a growing network of global and regional partners, InfoTech supports employees in making positive changes, and employers in making informed risk management decisions considering health, productivity and business impact.

"I am honoured and humbled by this recognition. It is very rewarding to see how many of our 'thought leader' clients have embraced the measures of productivity loss to better understand the relationship between employees' personal lifestyle choice or health status and organizational and psychosocial factors that include factors beyond work. That insight enables them to develop appropriate investment strategies that have a measurable and positive impact on the business", said Zorianna Hyworon. "The start of my collaboration with IHPM began at that first conference I attended in 2001 when I realized that productivity was the missing piece linking health and business impact. It's been an interesting journey from Orlando in 2001 to Orlando 2010 by way of the world."

As an ongoing commitment to the international market, Hyworon is leading InfoTech in the development of a new technology and product platform for Wellness Checkpoint that will add significant new power and flexibility in supporting more languages and adaptive regionalization. Founded just over 25 years ago, today InfoTech is an international company operating in 70 countries from its headquarters in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
