Randolph County Named Healthiest Employer in NC



RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C., November 7, 2022 – Randolph County has been recognized in the 2022 Healthiest Employers of North Carolina, an awards program created to honor people-first organizations that prioritize the well-being of their employee population. Randolph County Government has just over 900 employees who operate the service areas of general government, public safety, economic and physical development, environmental protection, human services, and cultural and recreational services. 

Randolph County incorporates a holistic approach to employee well-being by providing initiatives that touch on the major dimensions of wellness including mental, financial, emotional, spiritual, and social. Some initiatives offered include stress management and mindfulness programs, financial and budget support, mental health assistance, a 24/7 well-being hotline, health coaching access, pet therapy, onsite mobile mammography screenings, financial coaching, and well-being paid leave. 

“This is an outstanding honor that we are very proud of and is the direct result of hard work, planning, leadership, and a total, unwavering commitment to creating a culture of wellness. Thanks to Sam Varner for leading the efforts of making Randolph County Government the 14th healthiest workplace in America,” said County Manager, Hal Johnson. 

These companies were recognized because of their commitment to workplace wellness and their exceptional health and benefits offerings. Even with many employers returning to the office or to hybrid schedules, selected companies have had to adapt their workforces to reflect the ever-changing views of the modern American office. Increased flexibility, work-life balance, and mental health resources have proven to be common trends among Healthiest Employers honorees.

Award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Culture and Leadership, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analytics. Completed assessments were ranked with the proprietary Healthiest Employers® Index, a 1-100 rubric for wellness programming. The survey is scored and powered by Springbuk, a health intelligence platform that simplifies data-driven decision-making with an intuitive user experience, predictive modeling, and curated action steps.
