Health and wellness in the workplace are extremely important; and with the holidays coming up, it could help you to avoid the dreaded holiday weight.
The Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Bureau is offering a free workplace wellness training.
Originally, the program only allowed one trainer to work with three businesses over a three year period.
However, that isn't the case anymore.
The new workplace wellness program allows for a trainer to visit your building and train you and others over a two hour period on how to implement the seven-step wellness process.
"Hopefully happier and healthier, engaged employees. There’s just so many things you can do with wellness. It’s just not nutrition or exercise programs. It's stress management, stress reduction," says Penny Paul, a Health Promotion Specialist at the Cascade County Health Department.
The program is involved with the non-profit organization Wellness Council of America (WELCOA) that has a variety of helpful resources.
Following the training, you’ll have the ability to join WELCOA, who claims that having healthier employees can lead to missing fewer days of work, more productivity, lower healthcare costs, and increased loyalty to the company.
