News Release from Lane Co. Government

Posted on FlashAlert: August 18th, 2022 10:05 AM

Lane County has been recognized as the #1 healthiest larger employer in Oregon by the Portland Business Journal for the second year in a row.


The County’s dedication to wellness: 1) reduces health care related costs, allowing Lane County to invest more of its limited resources into direct services for the community, and 2) increases employee productivity, engagement, recruitment and retention.


“Lane County’s dedication to focusing on the wellness program reflects in the well-being and engagement of our workforce” said Lane County Human Resources Director Alana Holmes. “Employee engagement, wellbeing, and workplace culture is critical at a time when organizations face challenges to attract and retain talent.”


Highlighted in the award is Lane County’s Equity Lens Toolkit, which was created to help employees gain a new and different perspective regarding diversity; create positive, respectful and inclusive work environments; and address systemic barriers and inequalities people face. In addition, the Live Well Center, Lane County’s employee health and wellness center, continues to experience over 90 percent employee engagement.


“Lane County has established itself as an employer of choice because we are committed to supporting the whole person,” said County Administrator Steve Mokrohisky. “Lane County is committed to empowering our employees with flexibility and decision making to achieve the best solutions possible.”


In 2017, 2018 and 2019, Lane County was ranked third healthiest large employer in Oregon, and in 2018 was listed within the top 100 healthiest employers nationally. In 2020, Lane County was ranked second healthiest larger employer. In 2021, Lane County was ranked the #1 healthiest larger employer.


Employers are ranked on six categories which include: culture and leadership, foundational components, strategic planning, marketing and communications, programming and interventions and reporting and analytics. There are five employer size categories: small (2-99 employees), medium (100-499), large (500-1499), larger (1500-4999), and largest (5000+).
