The award is the culmination of the employees’ desire to live healthier, more active lives and make well-being a priority.
“The School District of Lee County is proud to be recognized as a leader in innovative wellness programs,” said Employee Wellness coordinator Heather Parker. “The wellness program cost savings has a direct impact to the cost of the District’s medical plan. We are thankful for the employees who take part and keep themselves healthy and encourage any employee that needs help living a healthier life please call us.”
The District’s workplace well-being program provides resources to assist employees in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Nutrition classes and mental well-being classes are offered.

The District encourages a doctor patient relationship with financial incentives for yearly physicals and offers reimbursement for fitness center fees.
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 platinum 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.
