Worksite Wellness

Businesses play a vital role in the health of their employees and worksite wellness can serve as a critical cornerstone to a business’ bottom line. A win-win!

Worksite wellness efforts address nutrition, physical activity, tobacco cessation and exposure and lactation support; and can include:

  • Tobacco-free grounds on all worksite properties, tobacco cessation support
  • Healthy food at meetings, in cafeterias, healthy vending or snack station, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) drop site, on-campus Farmers Market, employer-sponsored gardens or orchards
  • Increasing access to worksite recreational facilities and allowing flex time for physical activity breaks
  • Stress management
  • Much more!

We have designed a comprehensive worksite wellness toolkit for your benefit. It is designed with best practice strategies that will help you create and maintain a robust worksite wellness initiative.
