Employee Wellness

We work closely with our insurance broker, Woodruff Sawyer & Co. and our health insurance provider, Anthem Blue Cross in providing new health and wellness information to our employees. Since 2011, we have used Anthem’s wellness calendar as a guide on what information we provide to our employees. Click on the link at the bottom of this page for this year's Wellness Calendar.

The following agencies helped us acquire information for wellness as well as prescription discount program information to provide to our employees:

  • Queen of the Valley Hospital
  • St. Helena Hospital
  • Clinic Ole
  • Anthem Blue Cross
  • WebMD
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Clinic Ole provides us each year with their Exercise schedule which we post in all work areas. We also began working with St. Helena Hospital on their WorkWell Program, by having our employees complete an anonymous health questionnaire. There has been improvements in the employee's health habits.

We encourage our managers and employees to eat healthy by offering fruits and healthy snacks when we hold our Supervisor meetings and any employee trainings. We also provide a five minute stretching warm up to all vineyard employees each morning, and encourage regular stretching exercises among office staff.

  
 
We conduct regular safety trainings that help employees stay healthy by preventing injuries and illness. In March 2012, Colinas Farming Company added Long Term Care Insurance to eligible employees. Click on the link below for more information about this program.
