Workplace Wellness Program Tools

Employers in southern West Virginia can improve the health of their employees by participating in the Active Southern West Virginia Workplace Wellness program. This program will provide structure and support for a multi-year approach to increase physical activity in the workplace by utilizing a score card to measure results. Many people spend a significant portion of their lives at work, which is why it is imperative that work-sites prioritize health initiatives that are simple to understand, are not expensive to implement, and last beyond onetime events.
