Long & Foster Honored for Its ‘Culture of Well-being’

November 5, 2020

Organization recognized by Cigna for its benefits program, culture

The Long & Foster Companies has had a culture of putting people first and a record of achieving success for over 50 years. In addition to providing the best training and technology to its more than 10,000 agents, Long & Foster offers a well-rounded benefits package, including Cigna health insurance, for its over 2,000 employees.

The organization works hard to bring its employees the resources they and their families need, and that’s why Long & Foster is proud to announce it has been selected among Cigna’s many commercial clients as an Honorable mention for its Culture of Well-being Award. The award is a distinct honor created to recognize companies who are achieving success and positively impacting the overall health and well-being of their employees.

“Providing resources for our employees to take care of themselves and their families enables them to be more productive and thrive in their work, and that investment in our teams brings so much to our organization as a whole and each individual member of the Long & Foster family,” said Jeffrey S. Detwiler, chief executive officer of The Long & Foster Companies.

Honorees are evaluated on best practice components for creating and sustaining a culture of well-being, according to Cigna. This includes benefits program infrastructure (that is, its management support, goals and program branding), workplace environment and policies, program implementation, data collection, incentives and overall participation.

Clients receiving one of Cigna’s well-being awards demonstrate a strong commitment to improving the health and well-being of their employees. This requires a significant investment and allocation of resources for a return that is not always easy to measure. It involves the belief that supporting individuals in their personal health journey is more valuable to the bottom line than a measurable line item.

Long & Foster is the nation’s No. 1 real estate company as part of HomeServices of America. For more information about Long & Foster, visit LongandFoster.com.
