Wellness Program Incentive and Rewards

Brenau’s Wellness Program, funded by Cigna, is designed to support healthy behavior in the workplace and to improve health outcomes. The program includes activities during the year which relate to being healthy, whether it be physical, mental, financial, social or emotional health. Employees receive points and/or cash rewards for each activity in which they participate.

Points are added to the Activity Tracker, maintained by HR. At the end of the calendar year, names will be drawn from those who have accumulated Activity Tracker points. The more points you accumulate, the greater chance you have of winning cash prizes.

Motivate-Me is a new wellness initiative program provided through our Cigna insurance. For certain activities for which members participate, gift cards are provided. Employees must be a Brenau Cigna Member to collect Cigna Rewards. Maximum award is $200 per employee, per year.

Please view the PDF of the Wellness Calendar tor upcoming events.

Cigna Members can register online at my.cigna.com to view benefit information.

Clarification on summer half-day Fridays and dress code starting May 17

President Schrader announced summer half-day Fridays for staff starting Friday, May 17, at the Service Awards Ceremony earlier this week.

Employees are expected to work four hours. Those working normal business hours would work 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. People starting work at 9 a.m. would work until 1 p.m., etc. People using vacation on Fridays in the summer would therefore submit the time off request for four hours of vacation time.

Also, staff may wear appropriate casual wear throughout the summer months beginning May 17 and ending Aug. 3. Check with your supervisor for dates on which this is not appropriate.
