WAG Mission Statement
Strive to provide a healthy work environment that encourages growth by fostering exceptional programs and services to Associates that effectively promote well-being, quality performance and community involvement.
Practice What You Preach
A great leader never asks his followers to do anything he is not willing to do himself. At SilverStone Group, we encourage our clients to offer wellness programs for their employees, just as we do!
Our Wellness Activities Group (WAG) committee, established in 1986, is comprised of these volunteer Associates who give their time and talent to promote the wellness initiative for our Firm — pictured below: (front row) Jackie Schulte, Jessie Conlin, Merle Riepe & Jana Flaxbeard (back row) Lindsay Hansen, Lyndsay Schaben, Angela Lefler, Ashley Thomalla & Michelle Hansen Miller.
Because we understand that good health is the cornerstone of happier, more productive people, the WAG program offers educational opportunities that promote the health and well-being of our Associates — and their families.
So every time a SilverStone Group Associate recommends the addition of a wellness initiative to a client’s benefits program, there’s a wealth of firsthand experience behind the suggestion. We know wellness works because we’re doing it!
Governor’s Excellence in Wellness Award
SilverStone Group was honored with a Governor’s Excellence in Wellness Award at the Grower’s level. The Grower Award recognizes organizations that “grow the seeds of wellness” for employees. SilverStone Group was one of twenty-seven Nebraska employers being honored for their exceptional progress in improving health and increasing healthy behaviors.
Well Workplace Award
SilverStone Group was honored with a Gold Well Workplace Award for 2011 by The Wellness Council of America for addressing employee health in the workplace. Driven by a pre-defined set of worksite wellness criteria, organizations of all kinds compete to be recognized as one of America’s healthiest companies. Since its inception in 1991, more than 900 corporations, healthcare systems, public agencies and educational institutions have met those criteria and have been recognized. SilverStone Group first received the Gold Well Workplace Award in 2000 and then again in 2003, 2006, 2008 and 2012.
