As society becomes more sedentary, and physical activity levels continue to head toward unhealthy lows, it is so important to capitalize on the hours we spend awake and truly taking care of our bodies, mind and spirit.
Because a large portion of our awake hours are spent at work, companies have been looking to change the environmental factors their employees are in to improve health outcomes. The popularity of worksite wellness programs continues to grow, with more potential applicants stating a company having a wellness program impacts their decision to apply.
Healthiest Manitowoc County’s Worksite Wellness Coalition has set up a free event to address how a company gets started, regardless of size. What are the steps management, HR, owners and others should take to begin creating a healthy culture within their businesses?
Highlights on the agenda include learning about Kaysun Corporation’s wellness culture from CEO Ben Harrison. Hear what inspired Kaysun Corporation to do what they do, the path they’ve taken with challenges and success along the way, and how their employees are embracing the culture of wellness.
Also, hear how the Aging & Disability Resource Center of the Lakeshore changed its workplace culture in a small organization that doesn’t have a formal wellness program.
Get your questions answered during a facilitated panel that includes experts in wellness from Aurora, Bellin, Holy Family Memorial, Kaysun, Prevea and the YMCA. Have a chance to win door prizes and see wellness in action on an optional tour of Kaysun’s facility.
All attendees will receive lunch and walk away with a resource bundle to supplement what they learned and decide for themselves what tools in the community could best serve them.
Healthiest Manitowoc County is asking any businesses that have wellness initiatives for workplaces in brochure form to contact email@example.com to discuss including that business’s information in those bundles.
The event will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 26 at Kaysun Corporation in Manitowoc. Registration is coming out later this month.
