It is important to prioritize Worksite Wellness…
WIC Worksite Wellness is a statewide initiative created for California’s 3,000-3,500 frontline employees. Aligning the California WIC working environment with the nutrition and health messages that WIC staff share with a million WIC families every year, this comprehensive wellness program promotes workplace policies that build a culture to 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, and results from informed daily decisions. When the work environment embraces stretch breaks, walking meetings, healthy snacks, and a variety of wellness activities, those daily decisions turn into healthy actions—and wellness becomes the norm for employees and their families.
This campaign supports local agencies as they prepare for and achieve official Well WIC Worksite certification and recertification. It continues to support Certified Worksites in sustaining staff enthusiasm and engagement in healthy work behaviors by providing wellness programming throughout the year.
