Employers in southern West Virginia can improve the health of their employees by participating in the Active Southern West Virginia Workplace Wellness program. Many people spend a significant portion of their lives at work, which is why it is imperative that workplaces prioritize health initiatives that are simple to understand, inexpensive to implement, and last beyond onetime events.

Active SWV’s Workplace Wellness 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.
Participating in the Workplace Wellness program will also connect workplaces to other already successful Active SWV programs like our Community Captains program (offering free outdoor physical activity weekly programs),  Kids Run Clubs, the Bike/Walk SWV advocacy model, and high quality special events
The Active SWV Workplace Wellness program is open and free to any size workplace in Raleigh, Fayette, Nicholas, and Summers counties. Contact our office for more information at [email protected] or (304) 254-8488.
