WIC Worksite Wellness is a statewide wellness initiative created for
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.
