WORK WELL, BE WELL, LIVE WELL

Program Overview:

WIC Worksite Wellness is a statewide wellness initiative created for California’s 3,500 dedicated frontline employees. Aligning the California WIC working environment with the nutrition and health messages that WIC staff share with over a million WIC families every year, this comprehensive wellness program will focus on workplace policies that build a culture to promote and support lifelong healthy habits.

Health is much more than the absence of disease. Wellness is a complex balance of physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and intellectual health. Wellness, that sense of well-being, that elusive life-work-family balance, is the result of involved, daily decision making. When the daily work routine embraces stretch breaks, walking meetings, and the work environment includes healthy snacks and a variety of wellness activities, those daily decisions turn into healthy actions—and wellness becomes the norm.

The program supports local agencies as they prepare for and achieve official Well WIC Worksite certification, and then continue to support Certified Worksites in sustaining staff enthusiasm and engagement in healthy work behaviors over a three year period, at which time they will have the option to update and renew their Certification.
