American Heart Association Recognizes Daugherty for 2021 Workplace Health Achievement
The results of the American Heart Association 2021 Workplace Health Achievement Index were announced, and Daugherty Business Solutions, an advisory services and technology consulting partner, achieved national silver recognition for taking significant steps to build a culture of health and well-being for their workforce.
This is the fourth consecutive time Daugherty has received this recognition and the first-time reaching silver status.
Daugherty is one of more than 450 organizations nationwide that completed the Index assessment this year, evaluating the period of July 31, 2020, to June 30, 2021. Of the organizations that completed the Index assessment, nearly all earned gold (43%), silver (31%) or bronze (19%) status.
“As we continue to prioritize a healthy work culture for our teammates, we are honored to be recognized at the elevated silver level,” said Daugherty Enterprise Health & Wellness Lead Lauren Donnelly. “The Enterprise Health & Wellness Committee is pleased to accept this award and will continue to improve and add to our already existing workplace health benefits and content.”
Studies show healthy employees are more productive and use less sick time, and organizations that create a culture of health in the workplace can improve employee retention and organizational reputation.

In the new year, the American Heart Association will introduce a reimagined Index, the Workforce Well-Being Scorecard. Building on the legacy of the Workplace Health Achievement Index, the new Scorecard will provide organizations with a way to measure the total health and well-being of their workforce, including the importance of the mental well-being of employees. Participating organizations will receive specific, evidence-informed tools and services to help build and maximize effective cultures of workforce health and well-being.
