Worksite Wellness in Central Vermont

We work with local employers to improve employee health and wellness. We can provide support and ideas on developing wellness teams and wellness policies in the workplace, including:

  • offering healthy foods at meetings
  • allowing flex-time for physical activity
  • creating breastfeeding friendly spaces
  • creating smoke-free zones

Worksite wellness programs and policies can help adults lead healthy lives. Worksites that remove barriers to healthy food choices and physical activity help reduce chronic disease risk, support emotional and mental health, and boost productivity for their employees. Investing in worksite wellness programs can help curb healthcare costs and have other financial benefits for employers. Check out our Worksite Wellness Toolkit for some ideas on how to jumpstart your employee wellness.
