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.
Active Southern West Virginia, in partnership with the New River Gorge Regional Development Authority, WV DHHR BPH Division of Health Promotion and Chronic Disease, WVU School of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, and Try This WV would like to make this Workplace Wellness program available to any size business in Raleigh, Fayette, Summers, and Nicholas County in 2018.
Participation will also connect businesses to the already successful Active SWV programs; Community Captains offering free outdoor physical activity weekly programs, elementary school Kids Run Clubs, the Bike/Walk SWV advocacy model, and high quality special events.
