Great River Energy recognized as a ‘Healthiest Employer’ for 2023

Great River Energy’s long-standing reputation as a leading well-being employer continues as the cooperative received another industry accolade.

Great River Energy once again received recognition for its employee well-being efforts, placing first as an honoree for the 2023 Healthiest Employers of Minnesota in the mid-size category. At a national level, Great River Energy has earned a place on the “Healthiest 100” list six times since 2014 and was inducted into the Healthiest Employers “Hall of Fame” in 2022 — just one of 20 organizations to be honored with this distinction.

Great River Energy was recognized specifically this year for providing accident, critical illness and hospital indemnity benefits to individuals on the high deductible health plan at no cost to the employee; robust mental health benefits and training and development opportunities; and offering a formal well-being program with an employee completion rate consistently over 80%.

“Great River Energy remains committed to offering a variety of well-being opportunities in support of our employees and their families,” said Jason Vollbrecht, manager of benefits and retirement at Great River Energy. “This recognition is testament to our culture of health as well as our commitment to our employees by providing a robust and high-quality Total Rewards package.”

Healthiest Employers is a trusted awards program that recognizes people-first organizations taking a more proactive approach to employee health. It has evolved into a community to connect best-in-class, like-minded individuals who share a common goal of improving their employees’ health and well-being. Award applicants are evaluated across six key categories: culture and leadership; foundational; strategic planning; communication and marketing; programming and interventions; and reporting and analytics.
