The wellness committee has organized many events over the years geared towards helping us attain a healthier lifestyle. From having annual health risk assessments, providing flu shots, organizing different fitness and nutrition challenges to hosting on-site cooking classes and massage days, the team has done a great job increasing our awareness of the tools available and the steps we can take to improve our health. “The instructors at the CitizensFirst self-defense class were great and provided several tactics for defending yourself. It was helpful to get real-life experience of being attacked and being able to defend yourself.” said Denise Wildish, who participated in a self-defense class.

Because of the awesome efforts our wellness team has made, the Wellness Council of Wisconsin recently presented CitizensFirst with its coveted Silver Well Workplace Award, which recognizes an organization for its commitment to the health and wellbeing of their employees. We worked hard to meet the rigorous standards set by the Well Workplace process and it paid off! We are really proud of this accomplishment. And since we had such a high level of employee participation in our wellness events, feel free to say congratulations the next time you see your favorite CitizensFirst employee!
