OpenTempo Vermont Worksite Wellness Award

OpenTempo, Inc., a healthcare technology company based in Williston, VT, was awarded a bronze-level Worksite Wellness Award for 2013, for their extraordinary commitment to employee health.

WILLISTON, VT – OpenTempo, a healthcare IT company that helps medical practices create efficient staff schedules, has been awarded a bronze-level Governor’s Worksite Wellness Award for 2013.

The awards will be presented by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports and the Vermont Department of Health on Thursday, March 27, 2014 at the Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center in South Burlington. They are part of a day-long event focused on worksite wellness, taking place from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

OpenTempo was one of 99 businesses that were considered for an award. The Worksite Wellness Awards recognize employee wellness programs that decrease absenteeism and employee turnover, and lower healthcare costs. Bronze-level awards are given to employers with solid wellness practices that are not structured into a written plan. Says OpenTempo CEO, Rich Miller:

Our leadership team made a conscious decision at the beginning of last year to create sustainable growth without losing team spirit or creativity. Wellness strategies are part of that.

The results speak for themselves. By the end of 2013, OpenTempo had tripled its staff, all while creating an energized, enthusiastic environment for its team. As part of its commitment to wellness, OpenTempo provides standing desks adjustable to all heights, along with ergonomic chairs. Physical activity is encouraged with bowling excursions, paintball, and rock-climbing sessions. Work-life balance is supported, dogs are welcome in the office, and fitness breaks are common.

“Worksites that promote healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco use cessation, and breastfeeding, contribute to the overall health and wellness of all Vermonters, and they are one of the key reasons we are routinely rated the nation’s healthiest state,” said Vermont Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD.
