The San Antonio Business Group on Health (SABGH), in collaboration with the Mayor’s Fitness Council, recognized Security Service Federal Credit Union (SSFCU) with a Silver Award in the 2014 Healthy Workplace Recognition Program. It is the fifth year the credit union has been recognized in the category for workplaces with more than 200 employees.
In addition, the credit union was recognized by the Utah Council for Worksite Health Promotion (UCWHP) with a Platinum 2014 Healthy Worksite Award. This award is the state’s premiere award honoring outstanding achievements of businesses and organizations that have employee health promotions and wellness programs. The Utah award was based on corporate activities and outcomes for employee programs focused on the general worksite, environment, nutrition, physical activity, safety and prevention.

The credit union is well known for its sponsorship of community fitness events where employees and their families have the opportunity to participate in activities promoting physical fitness. Beyond fitness, SSFCU supports health and wellness in a very holistic way, promoting health education, physical activity, nutrition, smoking & tobacco cessation, financial fitness and more.
At the San Antonio awards ceremony, SSFCU compensation and benefits manager Amanda Kassler served as keynote speaker, presenting the credit union’s wellness initiative and best practices for the nearly 50 companies present.
“Since we started our wellness program six years ago, we’ve seen huge results,” said Anne Hoeffner, SPHR, SSFCU assistant vice president of compensation and benefits. “While we’ve received many industry awards, we’re particularly proud of the results…millions of steps taken…thousands of hours of exercise logged…thousands of pounds of weight lost. Our employees are taking up healthy habits and getting rid of the bad ones. We’re really making a difference,” she added.
