J.M. Wilson Selected as Michigan Healthiest Employers Finalist!

We are so pleased to share that J.M. Wilson was selected as Finalist in the Michigan Healthiest Employers competition for companies with 5-99 employees.

We, at J.M. Wilson, are committed to creating a culture of wellness.  Some of our long time blog readers may remember our post on how began our corporate wellness journey, since that time we have continued to expand and enhance our wellness offerings to associates.

Kristin O’Leary, Project Coordinator, Sarah O’Day, Human Resources Manager, and Jessica Garcia, Claims Supervisor, accept the Finalist Award.

A few of our newest additions to the program include;

-Challenges : We’ve hosted several wellness challenges, with focuses from Walking to Water.  With each challenge, we have set goals and rewards for associates.  Each have been a fun way to help motivate all of us!

-Healthy Food : We’ve begun providing samples of new healthy food options to associates.  Superfoods such as chia and quinoa have been featured.  This gives associates the opportunity to try something new – and healthy! – without fear of buying something they won’t like.

-Share Your Tips : We held an internal contest for all of our associates’ healthy tips.  We now share their tips weekly on our Intranet, so we can learn from each other!

-Get Physical : Our home office offers Yoga class weekly for a reduced cost.  Associates can find their inner zen during their lunch hour – and return to work refreshed!

How does your agency promote wellness?  Share your thoughts with us!
