Organizational Assessment The CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard provides the basic needs of  ”assess, educate and show progress” and  addresses the limitations of reporting and administration with a much more robust report over many program areas, providing a more in-depth look at workplace wellness programs.

Employee Interest Survey Engaging employee interest is one of the first steps towards creating a robost worksite wellness initiative. How do you hit the bullseye if you don’t know what the target is? Information obtained from these surveys will help our team zero in on ideas that will keep employees interested and engaged. We would encourage you to set up the employee interest survey as a possible SurveyMonkey and send to employees via email. Add other questions as deemed appropriate.

Healthy Eating

There are many different food guidelines designed to help communities increase access to foods and beverages that support health and wellbeing. Below are two excellent summaries of some of the leading guidelines.
