Employer resources and toolkits

Workforce wellness doesn’t get any easier than this. If you’re looking for something basic, print a flier and hang it in your break room. If you want to up the ante, host a wellness challenge or health fair, or sponsor an on-site flu shot clinic. Use our toolkit materials to encourage healthy habits. Whether you want to focus on preventive care, smoking cessation or health coaching, we’ve got something for every organization. Each toolkit includes communication pieces to support a wellness campaign.

Getting Started with Workplace Wellness

As an employer, you can have a positive influence by creating a workplace that fosters and supports well-being. An effective wellness program can facilitate a cultural change that reaps longer-term benefits at your workplace and ultimately impacts your bottom line. We've developed this toolkit to help you identify your organization’s interests and needs, design impactful initiatives, engage your employees and evaluate your workplace wellness program.
