City of Clearwater Recognized With Cigna Well-Being Award

CLEARWATER, FL. – Cigna has selected the city of Clearwater as a recipient of its annual Cigna Well-Being Award for demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the health and well-being of its employees through a workplace wellness program.

The city’s wellness team is committed to creating a range of wellness activities for its workforce aimed at helping employees live a healthy lifestyle and take steps to improve their health.

“In the city of Clearwater, employee health is our top priority,” said Jennifer Poirrier, the city’s Human Resources Director. “We are honored to be selected as a recipient of the Cigna Well-Being Award. We understand the important role employee wellness plays in an organization’s success.”

Poor health takes a toll on workers, as well as employers. A nationwide Cigna resilience study found that two-thirds of full-time employees are at risk of not being able to overcome challenges, which can result in lower job satisfaction, lower performance and higher turnover. Employers can help build resilience in their workforce by emphasizing holistic health management and offering tools and resources. Successful wellness programs as enacted in the city of Clearwater help combat these organizational challenges.

“Creating a healthy work environment is a rising focus for many organizations, including the city of Clearwater,” said Well-Being Coordinator Christopher Baker. “Many employers are seeing lower health care costs as a result of wellness initiatives.”

Cigna Well-Being Award candidates are evaluated based on the core components of their well-being program, including leadership engagement, company culture, strategy and goals, implementation, and employee engagement. All applications are scored and reviewed by a panel of Cigna health promotion experts.
