The Wellness Committee advocates for healthy life choices by:
- Promoting the tools and resources that can help improve health and welfare

- Creating a healthy workplace culture.
Activities have included flu shots, biometric screenings, "Lunch & Learns,” complimentary chair massages, cooking demos and CPR/First Aid classes and certification.
Conning’s consistent support for our employees’ well-being and professional growth through training programs such as:
A series of introductory training sessions providing a brief overview of the firm’s many business areas presented by our resident subject matter experts. These one-hour sessions (live or recorded) focus on topics such as our investment process, risk management, products and services, operations and insurance research.
The mentor program supports the personal growth and career development of more junior employees through selective one-to-one pairing with more senior, experienced employees. The mentoring relationship is an ongoing one of continuous improvement, learning, coaching, dialogue, and challenge, involving a transfer of professional skills, company knowledge and newer perspectives and ideas.
