When Guthrie Sr. Recruiter Michele Browning decided to plan a trip to New Orleans to visit friends, she first asked for assistance. Michele contacted eni, Guthrie’s employee assistance partner, to try out the free personal assistant service. During that initial contact, Michele requested hotel recommendations and a list of “must do” activities. From that point on, she had excellent help planning the vacation. She was so satisfied with the experience that she has since submitted a number of personal assistant requests and is currently planning her next big vacation through the service.

The previous Guthrie wellness incentive has been paused as the Wellness Committee conducts a thorough review of our wellness initiatives across the organization and works to revamp the wellness incentive program. Over the past few years, the program has seen participation in the incentive greatly reduce, and in 2016, less than 20% of eligible staff chose to take part. The Committee is committed to delivering a high quality health and wellness program, and is reviewing alternative programs that can be used by all staff across the entire system.
