Mitchell Honored as One of San Diego's Healthiest Companies

Insurance and Repair Technology Solutions Provider Honored for Its Comprehensive Employee Wellness Program

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 24, 2013) - Mitchell, a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the Property & Casualty claims and Collision Repair industries, today announced it was named as one of the healthiest companies in San Diego by the San Diego Business Journal in the outlet's fourth annual Healthiest Companies Awards. The awards spotlight companies that have created environments where employees enjoy going to work. The judges looked specifically at four corporate characteristics: visible leadership support and involvement; significant investment in the wellness program; strategy for measuring the ROI; and a strong desire to create a company culture of well-being. Mitchell placed third in the 'large company' category out of 63 finalists.

In 2012, Mitchell drafted a comprehensive, multi-year wellness strategy aimed at improving employee health, productivity and morale, and to attract and retain top talent. Mitchell's wellness plan was built on four key areas of focus and provides the company and its employees with a holistic approach to wellness. These four pillars include:

  • Know Your Risks: Free, company-sponsored health screenings to ensure employees have complete visibility into their health and potential risks
  • Get Moving: Physical activity is encouraged, and free onsite fitness classes including boot camp, 5K race training and yoga are offered
  • Eat Smart: Nutrition education is offered and weight loss program memberships, including Weight Watchers, are encouraged and subsidized
  • Live Holistically: Stress reduction, community involvement and global responsibility are stressed and available to all employees 

"Our quest to become a healthy, customer-focused employer in San Diego is driven by our exceptional team of employees that are committed to wellness," said Alex Sun, president and CEO at Mitchell. "We have specific initiatives in place, such as free exercise classes, health screenings and other wellness programs, to help our employees live a balanced lifestyle. I'm honored to accept this award and grateful to the local community and the San Diego Business Journal for recognizing our work."
