Worksite WellnessTeam

Committed to advancing a culture of health across Polk County, the Worksite Wellness LEAD  Team provides education and support in the development and enhancement of wellness programs to businesses in our community.

The Team has launched a series of listening sessions with local business leaders and HR  professionals to learn more about the challenges businesses face when implementing wellness programs. Partnering with area Chambers of Commerce, this series of group discussions will continue to be held in communities across the county throughout Fall 2018. Information learned from these sessions will guide the future plans of the Team as they expand and promote a  culture of health and wellness in the workplace.
