School District Earns 2022 Aetna Workplace Well-being Award

The School District of Lee County is proud to announce it has received a Making a Difference Gold Level Aetna Workplace Well-being Award. The District has a strong commitment to improving employee health and features a comprehensive well-being strategy that employees are passionate about. The award is the culmination of the employees’ desire to live healthier, more active lives and make well-being a priority.

“I’m proud to be part of a company with a commitment to well-being,” says Bonnie McFarland, Director of Insurance and Benefits Management. “Over the last few years, we continued to support our employees’ health by introducing more self-paced, online options for wellness. Our well-being program is simply part of the way we do business.”

The District’s workplace well-being program provides resources to assist employees in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Exercise classes, nutrition classes and mental well-being classes are offered. There is a fitness center, health coaching, virtual wellness resources, onsite flu shots, and more available.

“Congratulations to the School District of Lee County employees and everyone that participates in the program in the best way that works for them” says Sandra Lozado, Director of Client Management and Wellness in Florida for Aetna. “They are commended for prioritizing their well-being and recognized for this great achievement. A special thank you to the employee wellness team for keeping numerous District locations motivated and engaged throughout the year. It takes a village.”

The Workplace Well-being award was established in 2017 and recognizes middle market, public and labor employers throughout the US who offer an Aetna medical plan to employees. Award recipients are selected based on information on their well-being strategy and design, communications and organizational engagement, and program implementation and evaluation.

The Gold level, the award’s highest honor, is awarded to employers who successfully create, provide, and support a healthier workplace for employees with effective programming, tools, and resources to help everyone on their own personal well-being journey.
