Staff

Wellness at Work

The primary goal of the Legal & General America wellness program has been to foster a community in which every employee is encouraged to lead a healthy and enriched lifestyle. Through the active engagement and mutual support of our employees, we have genuinely improved overall awareness and health at our company.

Our foundational objective is focused on the proper tools and education essential to any healthy lifestyle. Disease prevention and preparedness were promoted in-house through annual flu shots, vision testing, pulmonary function tests, and Dermascan screenings to pinpoint sun damage. Proactive employees attended seminars appealing to the mind and body that covered topics from exercise tips to juicing recipes. Among the most popular included "Stress Management 101," which centered on achieving the right balance between personal and time management and effective ways to cope with the physical and emotional wear and tear caused by stress, including breathing exercises, healthy diet, and keeping a sense of humor. "Quick and Easy" similarly attracted employees on the move searching for nutritional, 20 minute meals, quick and healthy snacks, and desk-ready exercises.

Legal & General America was recognized by Frederick Regional Health System, the Frederick County Health Department and the Frederick Chamber of Commerce for our commitment to improving employee health and well-being. In 2015, the Company received the Gold-level Healthy Workplace Award.
