URC has been recognized for its commitment and innovative policies to support mental health in the workplace by Mental Health America (MHA), an honor fewer than 25 percent of all applicants receive.

URC was honored with the Bell Seal at the Gold level for exceeding workplace standards that promote positive worker mental health and wellbeing, an acknowledgment of the company’s commitment to embracing and advancing best practices to promote mental health in all work environments.

The certification process includes a rigorous evaluation of policies and practices in four areas: workplace culture, benefits, compliance, and wellness. URC excelled in compliance by securing a score of 100 percent and culture by securing a score of 97 percent.

“This award recognizes the value we place on our employees’ wellbeing and the successful efforts we’ve made to enact those values,” said Robin Goebel, vice president of human resources at URC. “It’s a great day when we can humbly demonstrate our respect for our staff and how deeply we care for them.”

Bell Seal recipients represent over 28 industries – from health care and the public sector to financial services and manufacturing – and organizational sizes, from three to more than 1 million workers, in 35 states.

The Bell Seal is both a celebration and a call to action. It challenges employers to meaningfully improve the lives of employees, elevating mental health as a key component of organizational strategy.

“A recognition at any level – Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum – means your organization is doing an excellent job of aligning your wellness investments with topline industry best practices,” said Schroeder Stribling, president and CEO, Mental Health America.
