Landmark Receives Grant For Worksite Wellness

Landmark National Bank employees across Kansas will soon benefit from Worksite Wellness efforts in Fort Scott.

Since 2017, the Fort Scott Landmark National Branch has been working with WorkWell KS and The Healthy Bourbon County Action Team to implement sustainable worksite wellness policy, benefits, programs and environmental supports. With the implementation of a comprehensive worksite wellness plan, Landmark National Bank was awarded $12,500 through the BCBS KS Pathways to Healthy Kansas Grant to purchase environmental supports.

Employee health is a critical piece of any business strategy. Investing in a comprehensive worksite wellness plan can increase productivity, decrease absenteeism, injuries and presenteeism, improve employee morale, and enhance recruitment and retention efforts.

Recognizing the many benefits to health in the workplace, leaders formed a wellness committee and signed a BCBS Pathways to Healthy Worksite Pledge in March of 2017, demonstrating a commitment to employee wellness. Since that time, employees have participated in the WorkWell KS Building the Foundation, Physical Activity, and Healthy Food and Beverage Workshops.

The wellness committee collected information and analyzed data within the organization to develop a vision, consistent message, programs, benefits, policy, and environmental supports that will encourage employees to increase levels of physical activity.

In April 2018 Landmark National Bank Board of Directors passed the Physical Activity Policy encouraging all employees to develop a routine to increase daily physical activity.

“This policy impacts 30 banks in 23 communities and approximately 300 employees,” said Gregg Motley, Senior Vice President of Commercial Banking and SEK Regional Manager. “The employee participation we have seen in our wellness competitions across the region has been outstanding.”
