McCarthy Holdings, Inc., one of the nation’s largest 100 percent employee-owned construction companies, was recently recognized among the 2022 Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America. This national awards program honors people-first organizations that prioritize the well-being of their employee population. Companies on the Healthiest 100 Workplaces list are selected because of their commitment to workplace wellness and exceptional health and benefits offerings.  

Becoming One of America's Healthiest Places to Work

The comprehensive McCarthy health and wellness program offers employees and family members access to a wide variety of resources to support physical, emotional and financial well-being. Designed to be customizable based upon personal/family needs and goals, the national program is supported by regional wellness champions across the organization. More than 86 percent of employees participate in the voluntary program.  

“McCarthy is 100 percent employee-owned and our holistic approach to wellness aligns directly with our core values and commitment to support our partners and their families,” said Kristyn Cantu, Director of McCarthy’s Total Rewards program. “As a national construction company, safety has always been our top priority, and for us this extends to overall health, wellness, and psychological safety. We’re proud to offer many benefits and programs to help to make wellness part of our employees’ everyday lives, today and into the future.”  

McCarthy Employee Health and Wellness Programs

In addition to offerings for medical, dental and vision, and Total Rewards, the firm’s approach to wellness extends well beyond that – from chronic condition management, support navigating healthcare options, managing financial planning, and helping children who have challenges at school. A few additional highlights include: 

  • Award-winning Genuine Care mental health awareness program established to help break the stigma surrounding mental health and better meet the needs of employees, craft workforce and families. In 2022, the firm is expanding its employee assistance program (EAP) offering to provide care for emotional and mental health how, when, and where our employees and their families need it through enhanced coaching, therapy and self-care resources. An interactive online wellness portal offers educational resources and wellness incentives to make participation easy and engaging, including medical premium reductions. 

  • Financial coaching and resources  

  • Local wellness activities and events to support personal goals and help build healthier communities 

  • Local volunteer opportunities through McCarthy’s Heart Hats programs, which support our communities  

Healthiest 100 applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Culture and Leadership, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analytics. Completed assessments were ranked with the proprietary Healthiest Employers Index, a 1-100 rubric for wellness programming. The survey is scored and powered by Springbuk, a health intelligence platform that simplifies data-driven decision-making with an intuitive user experience, predictive modeling, and curated action steps.
