Gannon University was honored with Aetna's “Changing the World” award for creating a healthy workplace environment.

Gannon University is one of seven organizations nationwide to be selected by Aetna to receive its “Changing the World” award for creating a healthy workplace environment.

Aetna, a CVS Health company, uses its annual Workplace Well-being Award program to celebrate companies and institutions that show a commitment to creating a healthier workplace for employees through innovative programs. Aetna commercial plan sponsors in the United States with 50 to 5,000 employees (including fully insured and self funded employers) with an Aetna medical plan and a well-being program in place were eligible for the awards. Aetna customers could be recognized in four award levels.

Gannon University was recognized in two of the four award categories – the “Above and Beyond” award and the “Changing the World” award for receiving the highest score among mid-sized employers in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

“We are proud to be recognized by Aetna for our University’s emphasis on wellness and our commitment to creating a healthy workplace for our institution’s greatest asset– our employees,” said Mary Jean Taylor, PT, PhD, PCS, director of University Wellness.

“The University has truly reflected on ways to create a campus environment that fosters and encourages healthy lifestyle behaviors,” she said. “We continue to be inspired by our community members who have engaged in the resources and programming that the University offers, and have experienced a positive impact on their overall health and wellbeing as a result of adopting new wellness practices into their lives.”
