H100 2019 Winner Badge With this award, Keller ISD is nationally recognized as one of the best-of-the-best in worksite health. The Healthiest 100 Workplaces in American award culminates the conclusion of the year-long wellness awards program that Healthiest Employees host in more than 45 cities across the United States.

Keller Working On Wellness (KWOW) provides Keller ISD employees with a wide array of programming designed to support their physical, emotional, social, and even financial health. The annual KWOW Award competition encourages campuses to go above and beyond to improve and foster a culture of health and well-being among teachers and staff, while events throughout the year such as the K-Fit Summer Activity Challenge, Healthy Wage Weight Loss Challenge, and Therapy Dog Days keep health and wellness on the forefront of employees minds.
Keller ISD’s onsite Wellness Center (K-Well) represents a unique benefit for District employees, and KWOW actively provides educational opportunities throughout the year to encourage employees to reach their full potential and positively impact the lives of others.
“When employees have the opportunity to improve their health, they reduce their own healthcare costs as well,” said Sheri Rich, Keller ISD’s Director of Human Resources-Employee Benefits. “By having a health center on-site, our employees can easily be seen before, after, or during school hours. We know if we catch medical issues early on, it will save everyone money and improve their health down the road.”
