January 12, 2021

Merchants Bonding Company has been selected as a finalist in the medium workplace category for the 2021 Healthiest State Annual Awards. The awards recognize efforts to improve the physical, social and emotional well-being of Iowans.

Merchants prides itself on being an organization with a strong focus of health, wellness and work/life balance. Over the past few years, the company has implemented new and innovative programs such as an infants in the workplace program, financial wellness planning, health week and most recently, a wellbeing portal.

The wellbeing portal allows associates to complete health and wellness activities to earn points that count towards discounts on annual health insurance premiums. In 2020, 78% of associates took advantage of this incentive to possibly receive discounts on their 2021 health insurance premiums. 

This is the third consecutive year Merchants has been named a finalist in the workplace category. Merchants will be recognized and winners announced at a virtual Healthiest State Annual Awards ceremony the week of February 15. For more information visit
