El Cerrito, California (April 30, 2012) Vigilent, the leader in intelligent energy management systems, announced today that it was named as a winner of the National Center for Employee Ownership (NCEO) 2012 Innovations Award. The award, which was presented at the NCEO/Beyster Institute annual conference in Minneapolis on April 26, recognizes companies for innovative practices resulting in an engaged workforce and ideas that tie stock to improved company culture or performance.
“We are honored that NCEO recognizes the benefits of our unique wellness incentive program,” said Mark Housley, Vigilent CEO. “Our technology is built on the knowledge that a proactive approach delivers the best results, and we want to address our employee culture in the same way. We’ve already seen direct results from our stock-linked wellness initiative, and hope our success inspires other companies to embark on similar programs.”
The Vigilent wellness program was developed through a partnership with SlimKinetic, a provider of worksite wellness programs.
