KJT Group, Inc. Named 2016 Wealth of Health Award Finalist

KJT Group, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a finalist for the 2016 Wealth of Health Awards. An annual award, Excellus BlueCross BlueShield and the Rochester Business Journal honor Rochester area employers who promote health and wellness in the workplace. In its first year eligible for the award, KJT Group is a finalist in the 1-99 employees category.

KJT Group’s wellness program, Wellness by Design, was founded in early 2015 by staff members looking for a way to keep health and wellness top of mind in the workplace. Wellness by Design has three main goals: 1) Boost KJT Group employees’ health and morale, 2) Improve employee recruitment and retention efforts, 3) Have fun. The program encompasses four core components (Know Your Numbers: Health Risk Assessments, Exercise & Physical Fitness, Nutrition & Healthy Eating, and Sound Mind) and emphasizes participation in activities that promote wellbeing.

KJT Group President and CEO, Dr. Kenneth Tomaszewski commented that “We are very excited about being recognized for our recent efforts to develop and implement our employee wellness program. A small group of employees came to me last year with the idea, formed a committee, surveyed our employees and ran with it. The fitness challenges and community events really bring together our employees and everyone has lots of fun. The onsite chair massages, however, are everyone’s favorite wellness sponsored activity.” Winners of the 2016 Wealth of Health Awards will be announced June 8th at a special luncheon for all finalists.
