Worksite Wellness

Goals:

The goal of WCTC’s Worksite Wellness Committee is to provide resources and education to assist area worksites in providing an environment that fosters healthy lifestyles including promoting healthy food choices, regular physical activity, and wellness opportunities through education and program development.

Activities:

The Worksite Wellness Subcommittee has created and presented trainings for Taylor County businesses on how to implement an effective wellness program. This past year, the coalition received a grant from the Wisconsin Rural Hospital Flexibility Program to promote wellness at six area businesses. The six businesses were provided with an opportunity for employees to participate in a health risk assessment, biometrics, and individual wellness coaching. The committee will provide three educational sessions to these six businesses based on the topics which were most requested on the health risk assessment.

The committee will continue to seek funding to provide to additional businesses the opportunity to participate in this wellness program. Businesses may contact the committee for additional information on worksite wellness or review the document “Worksite Wellness Resource.”
