Feb. 7, 2024, Cañon City, CO – Solvista Health was just awarded the 2024 Platinum Bell Seal for Workplace Health by Mental Health America. The Bell Seal is a first-of-its-kind workplace certification recognizing employers striving to create mentally healthy workplaces for their employees.
Mental Health America (MHA) is the nation’s leading nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to promoting mental health, well-being, and illness prevention for all. MHA has spent decades researching mental health in the workplace and awards the Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health to companies that understand the value of addressing mental health at work and implement policies and practices that support employee well-being.
Solvista underwent a rigorous evaluation of its policies and practices in four areas: workplace culture, benefits, compliance, and wellness programs. The average employer scores just 36% on this evaluation, while Solvista earned a 92% rating, putting them at the highest “Platinum” level of recognition by Mental Health America.
“We talk about our values, culture, and mission a lot here,” said Brian Turner, Solvista CEO, “but we also remind ourselves to not just talk about it, be about it.”
That meant investing heavily in things like increasing employee benefits, creating robust opportunities for feedback and engagement, and implementing industry-best training and career pathway development across Solvista’s team.
The investment appears to be paying off. Solvista’s staff has more than doubled in size over the past five years. They now operate eight locations across Fremont, Chaffee, Custer, and Lake Counties and have increased the number of people they serve by over 110%.
“This recognition is a testament to the work we put in each day to listen to our team and implement real strategies to make Solvista an amazing place to work,” said Turner. “With incredible people on staff, we can do incredible things for the people in our communities.”
