Employee Wellness

We work closely with our insurance broker, Lockton Insurance and our health insurance provider, Kaiser Permanente in providing new health and wellness information to our employees. Since 2011, we have used our health insurance carrier'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
        • Ole Health
        • Kaiser Permanente
        • St. Joseph Health
        • WebMD
        • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Ole Health 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 training. We also provide a five minute stretching warm up to all vineyard employees each morning, and encourage regular stretching exercises among office staff.

We also conduct regular safety trainings throughout the year that help employees stay healthy by preventing injuries and illness.
