You could have heard a pin drop at the Keller Williams corporate headquarters on Friday afternoon. Except for some key support service providers, the entire staff closed shop early to take part in the first-ever KW Wellness Day.
Clad in red t-shirts emblazoned with the new Keller Williams logo, KWRI family members took part in physical challenges ranging from potato sack races to pull-ups.
And thanks to the passion and initiative of KW Wellness Ambassadors, market centers coordinated their own health and we
llness events in locations ranging from Oklahoma City to Fort Mill, S.C., to Florida's Treasure Coast.
“When we look at legendary companies, they all have several things in common,” President Mary Tennant said. “First, they give back. Second, they have the healthiest, most engaged people. At Keller Williams, we are passionate about taking care of the whole agent."
The first KW Wellness Day was part of the KW Wellness Initiative.
“This year, we launched a new KW Wellness program because we know that the quality of your life is even more important than the quantity of your production," Tennant said. "Real estate agents historically work long hours, eat on the run and get little sleep. Through our wellness initiative, we’re helping you lead healthy, happy, fulfilling lives.”
“Something that is incredibly important to us is ensuring that our KW associates and their families have the very best health care coverage,” Tennant said. “And we were pleased to announce last fall a new health benefits marketplace that helps associates receive the coverage they need. To our knowledge, Keller Williams was the first real estate franchise to offer a full, competitive health exchange for associates that complies with the Affordable Care Act. Keller Williams is committed to your health and wellbeing. We are constantly seeking ways to take care of your needs and are always willing to go the extra mile.”
