Top Executive: CEO Thomas H. Harty


Media giant Meredith Corp., parent company of local TV station WFSB, credits a broad range of campaigns and initiatives as the reason why nearly all employees and their spouses/domestic partners are buying into its 14-year-old wellness program.

In fact, more than 90% of insured employees and their partners have completed the “Meredith Wellness Program” since 2012.

As part of the initiative, Meredith employees can earn more than $1,000 back in reimbursement toward health club dues, races or personal training. Participants can also score credit toward the annual program by completing more than four hours of volunteer work at an organization of their choice.

Other offerings include on-site wellness screenings and on-site and live webinar workshops covering financial wellness topics such as savings, investing, debt reduction and retirement.

Since launching the program in 2006, CEO Tom Harty said the number of employees in the company health plan’s “high-risk” category has decreased from 40% to less than 10%.
