Agent Do Good Award winners

Montpelier, VT (December 7, 2021) National Life Group has been awarded the 2021 Platinum Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health by Mental Health America (MHA). This Bell Seal is a first-of-its-kind workplace mental health certification that recognizes employers who strive to create mentally healthy workplaces for their employees.

MHA, founded in 1909 - is the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the overall mental health of all. MHA has spent decades researching mental health in the workplace, and in 2019, MHA introduced the Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health to recognize companies and organizations that understand the value of addressing mental health at work and implement policies and practices that support employee well-being.

The Bell Seal recognizes employer advances in workplace mental health by awarding recognition levels of Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. National Life underwent a rigorous evaluation of its policies and practices in five areas: workplace culture, benefits, wellness programs, legal compliance, and leadership and community engagement. Platinum status demonstrates National Life’s dedication to employee well-being with outstanding scores in all areas.

“National Life’s vision is to bring peace of mind to everyone we touch,” said Mehran Assadi, Chairman, President and CEO. “That includes our teammates. Our people are our special sauce, and to help them to take care of our customers through emotional times, we need to take care of their mental and physical health.”
