Atlanta Gas Light, a distribution company of Southern Company Gas, has been named one of Atlanta’s Best Places to Work and Healthiest Employers by the Atlanta Business Chronicle. The company received the award during the publication’s 19th annual awards ceremony.

For 19 years, Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Best Places to Work Awards program has been recognizing companies throughout the region that go above and beyond in creating an enjoyable workplace and a thriving culture for their employees. The rankings of the top workplaces in Atlanta are based on employee engagement surveys and were presented in four categories based on workforce size.

“There is nothing more important than the health and safety of our teammates and sustaining an inclusive culture that allows each of us to grow and prosper,” said Pedro Cherry, President and CEO of Atlanta Gas Light. “Providing the tools and resources necessary for our employees and their families to live healthier lifestyles has always been a top priority, and we remain committed to finding innovative ways to invest in the long-term health and well-being of our employees.”

Atlanta Gas Light is committed to helping each employee improve and maintain their overall wellness through an expansive offering of benefits and resources offered by the company’s SouthernLifeStyle wellness program.

The company’s workplace health and wellness efforts were measured in a survey issued by the Atlanta Business Chronicle and its partner, Healthiest Employers, a data research company that collects, measures and compares corporate wellness data worldwide in six key categories: Leadership Commitment, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, Reporting and Analytics.
