Faculty and staff helped Seminole State College of Florida win $12,500 in incentive awards from the Florida College System Risk Management Consortium. The award will be used for health and wellness initiatives for College employees.
The consortium offered incentive awards to colleges that achieved a high number of points based on employee participation in such activities as completing personal health risk assessments.
Seminole State accrued 151,650 points, the second-highest number achieved among the 21 colleges that participate in the risk management consortium’s health insurance. Most of those points were accumulated during the College’s annual health fair, when 55 percent of Seminole State’s 782 full-time employees completed the health assessment.
Palm Beach State College took first place, with 155,740 points.
