We are available to help employers plan and start worksite wellness programs. Whether you’re thinking about starting a program or wish to strengthen your current program, we can help. Our staff will support your wellness team to assess your worksite, identify employee interests and barriers to wellness and move toward creating a wellness plan. We can help you begin with a narrow focus and broaden that focus as enthusiasm builds. We can also connect worksites with resources and partners.
Vermont Worksite Wellness Toolkit
In this toolkit you will find steps to design and sustain a wellness program that fits the size and culture of your organization. Our focus for wellness programs is on promoting physical and emotional health, reducing the major risk factors that lead to chronic disease—physical inactivity, poor nutrition, and tobacco use—and supporting preventative care and breastfeeding.
