Well-being is so much more than wellness. It is a complex combination of a person's physical, mental, emotional and social health. Well-being is strongly linked to happiness and life satisfaction. Well-being in the workplace is a key determinant of not only individual health and happiness but overall productivity and organizational profits.
Creating a culture of well-being in the workplace involves understanding, measuring and improving physical, psychological, social and financial wellness. This collectively allows employees to feel safe, healthy, and able to thrive and maximize their potential. Employee well-being is increasingly the focus of senior leadership attention.
For the third year in a row, Bouchard Insurance, A Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC Company, was recognized for Outstanding Culture of Well Being at the Cigna North Florida Summit. This program honors workplaces that are making a difference in the health and well-being of their employees. The Well-Being Award application evaluates areas such as leadership, organizational foundations, policy and environment, program implementation and participation.
At Bouchard, our mission is to support and educate employees, clients, families and friends by encouraging habits of wellness. We accomplish this by increasing awareness and making resources available that inspire and empower all to be responsible for their total wellness, or well-being.
Well-being: the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy
Well-being is an integral part of the culture at Bouchard Insurance and our programs help employees achieve their goals and improve their overall quality of life. We're passionate about our employees' well-being and take every opportunity to celebrate their success.
