Frankfort, IN – The Farmers Bank was awarded the Healthiest Worksite Award at the annual Clinton County Chamber of Commerce State of the Chamber Luncheon on Thursday, January 30, 2014, at Arborwood in Frankfort, Indiana.
The Farmers Bank is dedicated to the health and well-being of each and every employee. With the implementation of a Wellness Coordinator and Committee approximately 4 years ago, great strides have been made in engaging the employees in wellness worksite challenges. The Wellness Committee is a diverse team that includes employees from different areas and levels throughout the organization. They implement 6 to 8 wellness challenges per year, complete with incentives. Employee participation rates have increased to approximately 75% on most challenges since the inception of the wellness program. Some of the initiatives implemented by Wellness Coordinator, Robin Davis, have included weight loss programs, annual onsite health screenings and flu immunizations, an area for employees to exercise during lunch, and monthly health and wellness newsletters. In addition, we have “Tootie Fruity Friday” every week by having a selection of fresh fruit available in our employee lounges. The Farmers Bank is currently members of WELCOA and attend the annual Healthiest Employer breakfast sponsored by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
