VyStar recognized as a 2024 Healthiest Companies Platinum Award Winner by First Coast Worksite Wellness Council

JACKSONVILLE, FL (May 16, 2024) — VyStar Credit Union has been recognized by the First Coast Worksite Wellness Council (FCWWC) as a 2024 Healthiest Companies Platinum Award Winner. The Healthiest Companies Award recognizes organizations that support employees’ health and wellbeing through best-in-class wellness programs. Award winners were recognized during the 16th Annual First Coast Worksite Wellness Conference held in Jacksonville, Florida on May 8. VyStar’s Benefits team has been a proud recipient of this prestigious award for the 5th consecutive year.

“VyStar is incredibly honored to be recognized as a Platinum Level Healthiest Company,” said VyStar Chief Human Resources Officer Kawanza Humphrey. “The award reflects our belief that the most valuable thing we have is our personal health and wellness. We know that happy and healthy employees are crucial to the important work we do every day – in serving our members, our communities, our families and each other, which is why we’ve put such a focus on further cultivating our wellness culture, providing tools to help our employees take care of themselves as a whole person – mind, body and soul.”

VyStar was recognized as a ‘Platinum Level’ company for offering the best-in-class wellness programs and creating a culture of health and well-being throughout the organization. VyStar’s leadership supports and invests in necessary resources to strategically design, implement and measure programs that show improvement in the health and well-being of its employees. Platinum award winners bolster total well-being by demonstrating robust programming and supporting multiple pillars of well-being that include physical, mental/emotion, social, career and financial.

Empowering VyStar employees to live out our shared values is one of many reasons the credit union was previously recognized for the fourth time as a “Best Place to Work” in 2023, by the Jacksonville Business Journal and as a “Company with Heart” in 2024, by Jacksonville Magazine.
