MORRISVILLE, North Carolina, November 4, 2019 - FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies (FDB), a leading global biologics Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), was recognized by the Triangle Business Journal as one of the 2019 Healthiest Employers of the greater Triangle area in North Carolina. FDB received the top honor for its wellness program which includes a wellness center that offers for employees a gym, occupational nurse, nutritionist, mental health professional, meditation classes, free massages and an industrial athleticism program among other elements of the program.

“We are thrilled to receive this honor from Triangle Business Journal for recognizing our efforts as a company to create a healthy workplace,” said Leigh Fultz, Director of Human Resources at FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies. “The award comes at the end of a concerted effort for the company, which began making strides to enhance employee wellness five years ago. This program is part of a global initiative announced by FUJIFILM Corporation through its “Fujifilm Group Employee Wellness Declaration” which communicated the company’s strong commitment to promoting employee wellness.

“Our employees are our most valuable asset and we are committed to continue to expand this initiative in alignment with the commitment made by FUJIFILM Corporation,” said Martin Meeson, President and COO at FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies US. One exciting initiative that we are looking forward to will be the adding of Physical Therapy services in the new year.”

For the designation of ‘Healthiest Employer’, the Triangle Business Journal measures six key areas of workplace wellness: Culture and Leadership Commitment, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analytics. Organizations of all sizes and industries participate in the assessment and winners are categorized by the number of employees, so that employers compete against like-sized organizations. The online assessment scores and ranks the applicant pool, based on the weighted value of the completed answers. The assessment and methodology is developed by a national committee representative of the wellness, medical, higher education, research, non-for-profit and government communities.
