How Healthy is Your Workplace

Find out how “wellness” friendly your worksite is by identifying its strengths and areas that need improvement. Once you have this information, you and your wellness committee can recommend changes that will make the worksite more supportive of healthy behaviors. Use the initial assessment as a baseline to determine where you are at now, and then repeat the assessment in 6 months, and then the following year to gauge your progress.
