Three major awards were given out by the Valley Schools Employee Benefits Trust (VSEBT) to major employers in Arizona for their outstanding efforts in providing healthcare and other employee benefits to their employees. During the same event, gifts were donated by employees at their expense for the Toys for Tots Drive:
The three major awards earned were:
Outstanding Achievements in Wellness 2012 – BALSZ School District. This award goes to employers who focus on wellness programs for their employees and show marked improvement in costs and positive life outcomes as a result.
Best Business Practices 2012 – The Town of Queen Creek . This award is achieved by following all proscribed laws, accounting, financial practices and HIPAA requirements and having the most timely payments, documentation and fewest errors.
Lowest Per Member Per Month Costs – Tolleson Elementary School District (TESD) – This award goes to the employer with the lowest claims costs on a per member per month basis. This is usually do to a well-structured plan with a focus on wellness initiatives. Much of this particular award is due to the last few years of conversion by TESD over to health savings accounts plans which allow their employees and families to keep unused funds each year in their account.
Congratulations to these three employers for their outstanding achievements!
