Community National Bank is proud to be the recipient of the Excellence in Worksite Wellness Award for 2021. Each year the Vermont Department of Health and the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports honor Vermont businesses for their efforts to promote health and wellness in the workplace.
CNB’s Wellness Committee, initiated in 2017, offers engaging activities that encourage physical fitness, healthy eating habits and emotional health for the banks’ employees. The bank’s Wellness Committee meets monthly to plan themed activities to include all employees. No matter the fitness level of the employee, the committee makes it their priority to offer a wide variety of fitness options so that all are included. Prizes are sometimes used as a way to provide positive encouragement and to support local businesses.
During 2020, the Wellness Committee chose to focus on gratitude. With that in mind one of the themed activities was an “Attitude of Gratitude” gift bag given to all employees. In this gift bag was a variety of locally sourced items and several blank Thank You cards for the employees to show gratitude to a person of their choice. In turn spreading the Attitude of Gratitude around our communities. Other monthly themes from 2020 included Feet Health, Dental Health, Step Challenge and Hydration Challenge. The Wellness Committee is proud of their efforts and look forward to planning many more fun fitness activities!
