Long Island’s Healthiest Company

Long Island’s Healthiest Company program honors businesses committed to making employee health a top priority through workplace health and wellness programs. Through these programs, today’s health-conscious companies are investing not only in the strength of their business’ future but the futures of employees and their families.

Benefits of Applying

Innovate Long Island recognition programs celebrate the achievements of the region’s most innovative and forward-thinking companies and individuals. Award winners are growth-minded leaders who possess a passion for excellence that benefits their clients, their industries and their communities.


Each Healthiest Company honoree will be profiled along with their photos on the Innovate Long Island website in a special event section. Healthiest Company sponsors benefit from pre-event marketing as well as day of event recognition.


Healthiest Company award winners will celebrate and network with their peers at a high-energy awards ceremony dedicated to honoring their achievements and building connections to the business community.


There is no cost to apply. Candidates will receive notification that their nomination has been received and is under review, along with a reminder to check your calendar/schedule for possible conflicts with the event date. Upon selection, candidates will be asked to confirm award acceptance and attendance. As an awardee, we will anticipate your presence at the event to accept your award. If there is a schedule conflict, the candidate’s application will be held until the next award program.

We define a wellness program as an approach to care that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life; a workplace effort designed to encourage healthier lifestyles by giving individuals biometric, fitness, nutrition and other health-related educational advice and support.
