The City of Lebanon Named One of the Healthiest Employers of Ohio

The City of Lebanon has been recognized in the 2021 Healthiest Employers of Ohio, an awards program created to honor people-first organizations that prioritize the well-being of their employees. These companies were recognized because of their commitment to workplace wellness and their exceptional health and benefit offerings. Over the past year and a half, several companies have adapted to remote workforces and new policies because of the global pandemic. 

The City of Lebanon received first place in the 2-149 Employees category. Located between Dayton and Cincinnati, the City of Lebanon is known for our historic downtown, business environment and parks system. We believe the most effective requirement of our health program is required biometric screenings, which motivates our employees to make healthy decisions, encourages lifestyle changes and has been a vital part of our clinical improvements for chronic conditions. Last year, 82 percent of employees earned the highest tier in our wellness program, which gives employees insurance discounts upon completion. 

"Our employee wellness initiatives have helped foster a culture of not only wellness, but also teamwork and camaraderie through various events and programs that we have undertaken. Through education, physical activity, mental and emotional health, and community involvement, we have experienced amazing individual and group transformations that make us a better organization."
- Scott Bunka, City Manager
