For the third year, A.I.M. Mutual has earned CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ accreditation for maintaining a strong commitment to the health of its employees and satisfying the latest, comprehensive requirements of the Gold Standard.
The CEO Roundtable on Cancer, a nonprofit organization of CEOs founded by former President George H.W. Bush, created the Gold Standard to recognize employers for taking exceptional health and wellness measures on behalf of their employees. More than 200 employers in a wide range of industries have earned this accreditation.To be considered, an employer must be taking concrete action to reduce the risk and burden of cancer: (1) prohibit tobacco use and support tobacco cessation efforts; (2) promote physical activity, healthy nutrition and weight management; (3) provide health insurance options that include detecting cancer at its earliest stages, access to quality care, and participation in cancer clinical trials; (4) promote employee awareness of these initiatives; and (5) support the needs of cancer survivors in the workplace.
