Cadence's Rhode Island facility was recognized with a Superior Worksite Health Award from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) and the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce (the Chamber) for effective programs encouraging employee health and well-being in a meaningful way.
“We strive to make a positive impact on the health and well-being of our employees,” stated Amanda Vendetti, Human Resources Generalist at Cadence RI. “Receiving this award for the fifth consecutive year confirms the commitment to our employees and we are thankful to receive another Superior Award for Worksite Health.”
Cadence was one of more than 75 Rhode Island businesses honored by BCBSRI and the Chamber with a Worksite Health Award at a breakfast attended by hundreds of state business leaders. The event celebrated local businesses who have demonstrated a commitment to improving Rhode Islanders’ overall health through innovative wellness programs, as companies and individuals.
“We commend Cadence for investing in wellness programming and creating a stronger workforce,” said Kim Keck, president and CEO of BCBSRI. “Employees who are encouraged to take charge of their own health and wellness feel empowered and valued. Working as a team to help employees get healthy and stay healthy translates to a more committed, more engaged workforce – and that is a true sign of success.”
"By increasing morale and production, and decreasing healthcare costs and sick leave, worksite health programs are a win for all involved. We applaud Cadence for making the commitment to invest in the wellness of their team and for inspiring more Rhode Island businesses to find creative ways to help their employees live better, healthier and happier lives. We encourage other companies to follow their lead,” said Laurie White, president of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce.
