This award is the highest, most-coveted distinction in the corporate wellness industry, with only 100 companies in the US earning such designation each year.

On September 26, 2016, before 3,000 attendees from over 100 countries, CASTO was awarded this honor during the 8th Annual Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress in Washington, D.C.

“CASTO is focused on wellness programs that enhance all aspects of our Associates’ lives. We are proud to receive this award and recognition for our dedication to the well-being of our Associates,” said Lindsey Pavlik, Director of Human Resources at CASTO.
