The Mecklenburg County Working Toward Wellness Program is a worksite wellness program to help businesses improve their work environments in order to support healthy lifestyles. This is done by providing businesses with resources, guidance and ideas to encourage physical changes within the work environment and policy change to encourage wellness.
The Working Toward Wellness Program Coordinator is available to visit worksites within Mecklenburg County to provide a free assessment of their policies, practices and environment. Clients will be provided with a customized list of recommendations, resources and ideas to encourage wellness and follow up visits to ensure they have all the support they need to make healthy changes.
Also, networking meetings will be held to help provide opportunities for busy worksite wellness professionals and volunteers to receive training, resources and support in developing their worksite programs. These meetings will also provide opportunities to meet with other worksite wellness advocates to share ideas and best practices.
To schedule an onsite assessment or to be added to the e-mail distribution list to be informed of upcoming events please contact your Working Toward Wellness Program Coordinator.
Funding for this program provided by a grant from Achieve Heathy Communities.
