SENECA GAMING CORPORATION LAUDED AS WESTERN NEW YORK’S ‘HEALTHIEST EMPLOYER’ NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. – Buffalo Business First, a leading weekly business news publication in Western New York, has chosen Seneca Gaming Corporation for top honors as the region’s “Healthiest Employer” for 2014 in the Jumbo category for organizations with 1,500 or more employees. The corporation has earned a “Healthiest Employer” designation for each year since the award program’s inception in 2011. The Healthiest Employer awards program recognizes organizations that are committed to creating a healthy workplace. An online assessment tool through Healthiest Employers, a privately held technology and data research company, measures wellness programming in six key categories: Culture and Leadership Commitment, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analysis. Healthiest Employers compiled the rankings and selected 41 companies for the Western New York list. Seneca Gaming Corporation launched a comprehensive wellness program in 2010 and utilizes incentives, team competition and individual motivation to foster a healthier workforce. In 2013, new offerings included a 36-panel fasting blood draw and a confidential comprehensive screening program to provide team members with an opportunity to learn more about their personal health status. Nearly 60 percent of all team members enrolled in a company health insurance plan signed up for the new screening program, which provided them the option to receive a monthly medical premium reduction.
