NEW YORK – April 9, 2024 – For the second year in a row, Bain & Company is one of 54 employers that has been honored with the Business Group on Health’s Best Employers: Excellence in Health & Well-being Award.

Bain launched its global integrated approach to wellbeing, BEST, three years ago with the long-term vision to “enable every Bainie to live with vitality and fulfillment and foster a best-in-class, wellbeing-centric culture that enhances our impact on teams, clients, and communities.” With the core approach to shift individual behaviors, and elevate organizational support, BEST helps ensure that its commitment to wellbeing is a competitive advantage for the firm and its employees.

Ellen Kelsay, Business Group on Health president and CEO, said, “I am delighted to honor each and every one of these 54 employers, which demonstrably enhanced the health and well-being of employees and their families through leading-edge initiatives. In addition, their novel and impactful approaches focused on critical workforce issues, such as mental health and health equity. We congratulate all the winners.”

The comprehensive award criteria assess applicants on their approaches to leadership, culture and well-being strategy; holistic well-being, including mental health, financial well-being, social connectedness, job satisfaction, flexibility and time away; engagement and the employee experience; health equity and social determinants; and metrics and evaluation. Companies have the option to apply based on their U.S. or global workforce populations.

The firm received additional honors for excellence in Global Health & Wellbeing, which recognizes companies for demonstrating a commitment to equity with a set of standard benefits offered to their global workforces.
