Worksite Wellness

The policy provides the impetus and framework for state entities to develop a comprehensive worksite wellness program. This policy includes recommendations for the creation and administration of the worksite wellness program, outlining how the program should encourage and support state employee participation with a focus on the lifestyle factors of proper nutrition/healthy eating, increased physical activity, stress management, and tobacco use cessation. The policy recognizes the need to support the health and wellbeing of state employees, and how this programming may have a direct effect on family members as well.
