Meet our 2018 Healthy Workplace Award Recipient: Peoples Security Bank & Trust
Peoples Security Bank & Trust - Healthy Workplace Award, sponsored by Geisinger
“I was impressed by the many benefits the wellness challenges brought to our office, not only in the health and fitness awareness but in the wellness challenges, which turned out to be excellent teambuilding exercise. Teamwork flourished through friendly competitions, collaboration, and the opportunity to work with coworkers outside our normal job duties.” - Brenda Daniels, AVP, Deposit Operations Manager at PSB&T
“We had an enthusiastic response for Wellness Committee volunteers who would be responsible for encouraging health awareness by reaching out to fellow employees and promoting the wellness program and company-wide challenges. I believe this to be a big part of why we achieved a high participation rate.” - Darlene Pehanick, HR Officer/Payroll and Benefits Manager at PSB&T
Peoples Security Bank & Trust has designed its wellness program components to aim participants toward total health awareness and to include as many employees and their spouses as possible. They require participating employees to complete a Health Risk Assessment, get an annual physical examination, quit smoking or participate in tobacco cessation coaching, and reach the prescribed goals of basic biometrics. Additional choices are available to complete two more healthy activities, for example: company-wide healthy challenges, health screenings and seminars, annual flu shots, or proof of fitness memberships. In just the first year of their Wellness Program, they have had a 77% employee participation rate, of which 47% of employees reached all of their program goals. In the future, they hope to expand the program with the help of their volunteer Wellness Committee and their Health Coach.

“Taking part in the Health and Wellness program makes me more accountable for my well-being. The information, challenges, and goals provided promote comradery amongst co-workers, whether you see them on a daily basis, or correspond with them in another city.” - Jill M. Schlimme, Vice President/Consumer Loan Underwriter at PSB&T
