Huntsville, AL - May 2, 2016 – Teledyne Brown Engineering has earned CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ re-accreditation for maintaining a strong commitment to the health of its employees and satisfying the latest, comprehensive requirements of the Gold Standard.

Nearly 200 private, nonprofit and government employers in a wide range of occupational categories have earned Gold Standard accreditation, including the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and a number of NCI-designated cancer centers.
“Teledyne Brown Engineering has made a firm commitment to improving health and well-being across the company,” stated Jan Hess, President of Teledyne Brown Engineering. “We want to provide the necessary tools and programs to assist in improving the lives of our employees and their families. The Company began participating in the Gold Standard program in 2012 and we have successfully maintained our accreditation and exceeded our goals consistently every year after.”
To earn and maintain CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ accreditation, an employer meets specific requirements in corporate culture and health benefits: establish policies and programs to reduce cancer risk by prohibiting tobacco use and supporting tobacco cessation efforts; promote physical activity, healthy nutrition and weight management; provide health insurance options that include detecting cancer at its earliest stages, access to quality care, and participation in clinical trials; promote employee awareness of these initiatives; and support the needs of cancer survivors in the workplace.
