Health and Well-Being

Comprehensive Wellness for Employees and Their Families

Families

The NextEra Health & Well-Being program provides information, motivation and on-site facilities to help employees take care of themselves and their families.

Fitness Centers
  • On-site fitness centers are offered at 58 company locations. At the two corporate fitness centers, 59 percent of eligible employees are enrolled, with 44 percent of those enrolled as active users.
  • Sites with no fitness center have access to NextEra Energy's team of fitness professionals, and we offer a fitness rebate program designed to provide reimbursement to offset membership fees at fitness centers within the community.
Health Centers
  • With more than 17,000 visits to our on-site health centers in 2016, our employees and their family members received high-quality primary care and other services including nutritional counseling, blood work, physical therapy and radiology services.
Health Incentives
  • One of the ways NextEra Energy promotes employee health and well-being is by providing incentives for completing a wellness screening and displaying healthy biometric results. Every year, approximately 4,000 employees, spouses or dependents complete on-site wellness screenings. They can also earn incentives for completing an online health questionnaire and for not using tobacco.
  • NextEra Health & Well-Being staff professionals made 196 presentations to more than 5,000 employees in 2016 on topics ranging from healthy eating to back health and physical activity.
  • In an effort to keep families healthy during flu season, we also provide, at no cost, the annual flu shot vaccine to the majority of our locations for employees and their families. In 2016, more than 2,300 participants received flu shots at over 60 of our locations.
Nutrition Services
  • Our on-site cafeterias provide healthy meal choices at subsidized prices. In our vending machines, healthy snacks account for 25 to 30 percent of the product choices.
  • To encourage employees to make healthier food choices, NextEra Health & Well-Being partners with Aramark to provide a color-coded system that brings awareness to nutrition value. NextEra Health & Well-Being also offers nutrition programs and services from registered dietitians. Many of these programs act as an alternative to meeting the required healthy biometric numbers, giving all employees a chance to earn their health incentives.
Employee Assistance Program
  • In 2016, Cigna provided more than 5,300 total counseling sessions, and nearly 900 employees and their family members accessed EAP counseling services. On-site counseling programs provided nearly 600 individual sessions and more than 140 on-site educational presentations to more than 4,500 employees with a satisfaction rating of nearly 98 percent.
  • Employees also participated in various targeted programs, including Mindful Eating, Mindfulness at Work, a relaxation training program, a high-risk drinking screening initiative and a weight-loss program.
Environmentally Friendly Workplace
  • Our corporate headquarters in Juno Beach, Florida – home to FPL, NextEra Energy Resources and other NextEra Energy subsidiaries – has earned the prestigious Gold-level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance "green" buildings. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance "green" buildings.
Flexible Work Arrangements
  • Our flexible work arrangement guidelines allow employees to schedule their work hours around family needs. On-site childcare provided during events, such as hurricanes, help employees balance work and family when they are needed at work for longer periods than normal.
Functional Work Environments
  • We provide programs to address the ergonomic needs and interests of our workforce. Employees can request on-site evaluations of their workspace and may qualify for special office furniture and equipment such as adjustable keyboard trays, phone headsets, trackball mouses and chairs with better ergonomics.
  • Our ergonomics computer program has provided more than 3,400 employee workstations with a comprehensive office tool for ergonomic positions.
