Take a Break for Wellness!
The Public Health, Policy & Planning Wellness and Engagement Committee put on a health fair for staff to get out of the office and get moving for wellness. Activities included meditation, pickle ball, blood pressure station, and healthy recipes. It was a fun opportunity to be active with our co-workers from other departments. We encourage employers to care for employee health and wellbeing because there are numerous measurable benefits, from higher productivity and profitability to lower turnover and fewer safety incidents. You can start with small steps, like promoting this 5-minute meditation you can do anywhere.
