Peach State partners with various organizations to help with implementation of their wellness strategy. Each partner plays a role in the programs that comprise the three-pronged approach to wellness – physical, emotional and financial.
“Our partners hold us accountable to our goal of being employer of choice, while routinely optimizing the effectiveness of our programs,” said Garrett.
Physical challenges are held each month for employees to participate in with prizes going to the winners. Chaplains are available to employees for personal counseling about work, family, stress and other life issues. Expert financial counseling also is available to Peach State staff to help with wealth management and goal-setting.
