On Monday, October 21st, the American Heart Association (“AHA”) announced the results of its Workplace Health Achievement Index and awarded KKR Gold-level recognition. This is the third year in a row that KKR received a gold recognition and fourth year in a row that KKR has appeared in the Index.
The AHA created the Index with its CEO Roundtable members, a leadership collaborative of more than 40 CEOs from some of America’s largest companies who are committed to applying evidence-based approaches to improve their employees’ overall health. The Index uses science-based best practices to evaluate the overall quality and comprehensiveness of their workplace health programs.
Fostering a culture of health and wellness remains a priority for KKR. We offer a suite of programs and tools to help our employees make informed healthcare decisions. Employees have access to a variety of wellness offerings, such as on-site health coaches and global employee fitness and well-being challenges. Beginning in 2018, to promote positive mental health, we started to enhance virtual access to mental well-being support, and are communicating more often on the importance of mental and emotional well-being, while continuing to offer resources for meditation and stress management.
