Lenexa, Kans. (Feb. 12, 2015) – Faith Technologies, a leading full-service electrical, engineering and technology systems contractor, has once again made the shortlist for the Kansas City Business Journal’s 20 healthiest employers in the Kansas City area. This marks the fifth year the company has been chosen for this accolade.

- Reimbursements for flu vaccines, health club costs, run/walk events and recreational sports fees
- Annual health-risk assessments
- A nicotine-cessation program

- Other incentives, such as onsite services of chair massages and chiropractic care (select locations), and onsite workout facilities (select locations), for meeting goals within the program
“The benefits of encouraging health and wellness for our employees outweigh any cost that goes into these programs,” said Alyssa Kwasny, HR and Wellness Coordinator. “We all benefit from engaged, healthy employees, so this is truly an award for the whole company. The number of employees we see involved in these programs and their dedication to living well and being healthy is inspiring.
Companies are ranked based on responses to a 75-question survey about commitment to employee health administered by Healthiest Employer, LLC. Faith Technologies was recognized in the 1,000-3,499-employees category and was presented with its award at a luncheon on Feb. 6 at the Sheraton Overland Park Hotel at the Convention Center.
