    McCarthy Receives No. 1 Ranking on Houston Business Journal's Healthiest Employer List

     

    McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., a Texas builder for 35 years, was awarded the No. 1 ranking on the Houston Business Journal's Houston’s Healthiest Employers list for having committed to health initiatives and providing top wellness programs. This is the second consecutive year McCarthy has been named to the list. Numerical rankings for each honored company were announced on April 4 at a luncheon and health fair.


    “We are honored to be recognized for this award for the second year in a row,” said McCarthy Houston Division President Jim Stevenson. “We believe that by taking personal responsibility and making positive lifestyle choices, wellness becomes a positive, day-to-day approach to a long and healthful life.”


    The annual Healthiest Employers award program evaluates organizations using six key categories: culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communication and marketing, programming and interventions and reporting and analysis. With nearly 100 employees, McCarthy was selected in the small company category.


    McCarthy supports and encourages a healthy lifestyle for all its employees through its Build for Life Rewards Program, a company-wide wellness program designed to enable the entire organization to strive toward optimal mental, physical and emotional well-being. McCarthy focuses on four key areas: awareness, prevention, activity and lifestyle and stress, which combine to offer a comprehensive approach to wellness that serves the needs of the entire organization. From free bi-annual health checks to participating in a myriad of events such as the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure and the American Heart Association Heart Walk, McCarthy employees have numerous corporate-supported activities to maintain their health and fitness.


    In addition to its local recognition, McCarthy was also recently ranked among the 2014 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America by Healthiest Employers, the leader in employee health analytics, best practices and benchmark data. McCarthy, one of the oldest American-owned construction companies with offices nationally, was ranked No. 36 on the Healthiest 100 list.
