​Committing to a lifestyle of wellness is no easy task. That’s why Nelnet makes it a priority to provide tools and resources to help you reach success.

This year, we will be helping you reach your goals by utilizing our most valuable resource – our associates! Each month, a different associate will “Share the Health” by representing an area of well-being. Look for your fellow associates on posters and in videos on the Portal as they share their tips, struggles, and triumphs. This personalized approach will help you look at your wellness goals in a relatable and motivating way.

The monthly newsletter in WellAware will support the featured area of wellness, helping you take action toward success and earn points to achieve quarterly wellness incentives.

Even if you weren’t selected to be featured, you can still “Share the Health.” Post a healthy recipe in Nelnet’s Benefits and Wellness Facebook group. Encourage your coworkers to get active during a break. Be a captain for the Heart Walk or another awareness event. We encourage you to be an advocate for wellness every day!
