JASPER, Ind., September 21, 2017 – National Office Furniture, a unit of Kimball International, Inc., has been recognized by the American Heart Association as achieving Bronze level status through their Workplace Health Achievement Index.

Using science-based best practices, the American Heart Association evaluates the overall quality and magnitude of workplace health programs. Through this process, they calculate an average heart health score for employees of participating companies. Companies then receive benchmarking reports, allowing them to identify potential areas of improvement so that they can advance their annual performance and recognition, as well as employee health.
“We are truly honored to receive this recognition,” said Angie Kleinhelter, National’s Director of Human Resources. “We have a passion that our employees are the healthiest they can be for their families, friends, and their careers. We look forward to continuing on our wellness journey.”
National’s dedication to workplace health is evident through their on-site activities, health club reimbursement programs, and daily wellness opportunities.
