The CIGNA "What Works @ Wellbeing" Award

"The Cigna Wellbeing Award recognizes employees who actively and positively impact the overall health and wellbeing of their employees.

Creating a culture of wellbeing is more than providing programs that promote health. It's a commitment to improving health - and a plan to make it a way of life. It motivates and inspires people to take action to feel their best and perform their best, with the ultimate goal of lowering total benefit costs.

Working in different industries and locations, and varying in size, the 2015 Cigna Wellbeing Award winners are different in many ways. But there's one thing that they all have in common: They're all dedicated to building a culture of health and wellness. And with a commonality like that, everyone wins"

This is the third year that CIGNA0 has given out the Award. This year, there were two winners for New England: Champlain College and National Life of Vermont. The other region winners have not been announced yet.

The criteria the Cigna committee reviews to make their decision includes:

  • Foundation
  • Environment and Policies
  • Programs
  • Data and Accomplishments
  • Incentives
  • Results

Vermont Worksite Wellness Award

March 27, 2013.  An accomplishment we should be very proud of.  Worksite wellness programs benefit the entire college. In addition to helping improve the health of employees, successful work sites also see the benefits of lower health care costs, greater productivity, less absenteeism, stronger employee morale and retention, and larger hiring pools.
