PHOENIX (May 3, 2022) – The MJ Companies, a leading risk management and employee benefits agency for more than 50 years, has been named one of Phoenix Business Journal’s 2023 Healthiest Employers. The company received third place in the small company category.  

Healthiest Employers, a national awards program, uses a comprehensive online assessment to evaluate companies based on Six Pillars of Wellness including culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communications and marketing, programming and interventions, as well as reporting and analytics. The program is administered by Springbuk, a health data analytics platform. 

“The purpose of our organization is to inspire our associates to be their very best in their personal and professional lives,” said Michael H. Bill, The MJ Companies CEO. “MJ’s health and wellness program, A Healthier YOU, is a direct reflection of our commitment to our associates so that they may feel supported in everything they do, which includes their individual wellbeing.” 

MJ provides numerous opportunities for associates to improve their physical, emotional, spiritual and financial wellbeing. One of the company’s most successful programming has been the partnership MJ has created with its near site and virtual health clinic in addition to its healthcare concierge app.  

MJ also offers associates mental health and therapy services with HealthJoy, a telepathy and chat-based app. Through the program, long-term virtual therapy is available at no cost to all benefit-eligible associates. During the COVID-19 pandemic, MJ increased this benefit to provide limitless care and continual support. 

Bill added, “The intent is to provide comprehensive access to resources that make health and wellness more accessible for our team members and their families.” 

Beyond supporting the health and wellbeing of MJ’s associates, MJ’s programs have had a positive impact on productivity. Data from MJ’s healthcare concierge app directly demonstrates time saved when employees do not spend time commuting to or waiting to be seen at traditional health centers. 

The MJ Companies views health and wellbeing as a fundamental part of its purpose. Executive leadership is committed to providing solutions that inspire the fulfillment and wellbeing of its associates; this commitment is led by Bill, who is a huge proponent of not just physical health, but also emotional, social and financial health.  

This year, 78 finalists were selected as the Phoenix Business Journal’s 2023 Healthiest Employers based on their health and wellness initiatives. MJ has been named a finalist in the Phoenix Business Journal’s Healthiest Employers program for five consecutive years.
