PruHealth and employee benefits consultancy Mercer have teamed up to announce Britain's Healthiest Companies.
The competition is designed to give companies a better understanding of the health and lifestyle of their employees and what proactive steps can be taken to improve employee health.
It looked at a number of lifestyle, behavioural, environmental and clinical risk factors across the employee population, together with a broad view of corporate policies, practices and facilities that could directly impact on employee health.
In this year's Britain's Healthiest Company Awards the winning titles for small, medium and large company categories went to Nomura (large), adidas (UK) Ltd (medium) and Gilead Sciences Ltd (small).
Neville Koopowitz, CEO at PruHealth with Vitality said: "There are a number of strategic business drivers which are increasingly becoming boardroom issues.
"The business case demonstrating the tangible benefits from ensuring employee health is becoming increasingly clear, from the financial cost and impact on the bottom line, the organisational profile and being an employer of choice to minimising litigation by ensuring due diligence."
