Parkway recognized with wellness award

By: Mary Shapiro

UnitedHealthcare has recognized the Parkway School District for implementing a successful workplace wellness program to improve the health and well-being of its employees.

Parkway was one of 10 organizations across the United States presented with UnitedHealthcare’s “Well Deserved” award for its wellness program that produced a culture of better health in the workplace.

The district distinguished itself by creating an innovative wellness program during the 2016-2017 school year. Fifteen wellness programs were implemented across the district for Parkway employees, such as providing an on-site gym, financial wellness education, mindfulness programs and mobile mammography.

“Parkway’s wellness program is an important part of our strategic plan, and we appreciate our partnership with UnitedHealthcare,” said District Superintendent Keith Marty. “Maintaining a culture of health and well-being is beneficial to the staff and serves as a model for our students.”

This is UnitedHealthcare’s ninth year of recognizing employers who demonstrate a commitment to improving their employees’ health and well-being through innovative wellness programs. UnitedHealthcare worked with an external broker review panel to analyze review and judge all Well Deserved award applicants.

This achievement was recognized at a recent Board of Education meeting by a UnitedHealthcare representative.
