CNO Financial Group Recognized by the American Heart Association for Commitments to Workforce Well-Being
March 2023

The American Heart Association (AHA) recently awarded CNO Financial Group a national platinum level recognition for its commitments to employee health and well-being as measured in the Association’s 2022 Workforce Well-being Scorecard™. This is the fifth year that CNO has been recognized by AHA and promoted to the platinum level of recognition.

The Scorecard evaluates factors such as mental health policies, organizational well-being strategies to address burnout, health equity measures, employee financial resources and more to provide a comprehensive assessment of an organization’s culture of health. Last year, 381 organizations completed the scorecard, and were recognized with an achievement level of platinum (9%), gold (45%), silver (32%) silver, bronze (9%) or completer (5%).

“It is an honor to be recognized again by the American Heart Association for our commitment to employee health and well-being, and we are especially proud to be elevated to platinum status after earning gold in 2022,” said Yvonne Franzese, chief human resources officer. “We aim to provide programs, opportunities, and events that help promote healthy lifestyles and encourage our associates to select positive choices in their lives.”

CNO is dedicated to creating a culture that is safe and supportive while providing opportunities for everyone to reach their full potential – in and out of the workplace. Some of these efforts include helping to reduce stress and burnout, addressing health inequities and supporting organizational well-being, and building a healthier workforce.
