Worksite wellness is gaining strength as part of a good business plan. This is great news for employers and employees – according to the Colorado Culture of Health Conference, held April 12 at the Colorado Convention Center.
The Chamber’s partnership with Tri-County Health Department for the Work Well 2.0 project, afforded members of the coalition to attend the conference, and even participate in a panel discussion about some of the details of the project, for one of the conference’s break-out sessions. Panel members Cheri Prochazka with Fitzsimons Credit Union, Deborah Hoefler with Community College of Aurora, and Mitzi Schindler with The Chamber, along with their Tri-County Health Department Worksite Wellness Specialist Jennifer Tellis, shared successes and struggles about their worksite wellness programs. A couple of fun – and very inexpensive activities encouraging wellness included turning the stairwell into an art gallery for proud parents to take the stairs, and stand up and stretch breaks during long meetings.
The Conference turned out to be a great segue and subject for the April 13 Work Well 2.0 Health Series meeting. Those who attended the conference, shared their takeaways, and there was a lively discussion about how worksite wellness can be fun, doesn’t have to cost big bucks, and how it can positively affect the bottom line for businesses.
