well@work West Virginia Healthy Worksite Initiative 2016-2017

HPCD’s goals are to reduce the rates of obesity and the prevalence of chronic disease in West Virginia.  We undertake several projects to reach these goals, and one is the well@work West Virginia Healthy Worksite Initiative.  This initiative promotes and encourages healthy behaviors to reduce obesity and improve the health and well-being of West Virginians.
Want to help your employees AND your bottom line? By making small changes in the worksite, like starting a wellness program, employers can reduce healthcare costs for everyone. We invite your worksite to participate in the well@work West Virginia Healthy Worksite Initiative.  Registration is now closed.  Please contact Dasheema Jarrett for more information.

About the Initiative

To help us provide the very best resources to your worksite, HPCD uses the CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard that can be completed by employers or with our help. 

Upon submission of your completed Score Card, HPCD will provide you with resources tailored to your worksite and assistance to improve or implement your worksite’s wellness program.  

What are the benefits for well@work West Virginia participants?
  • Increased access to evidence-based ways to prevent and manage chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease
  • Improved health and wellness of employees
  • Increased knowledge of resources to take action and help sustain your wellness program
What You Can Expect
 

To provide technical assistance to your worksite, we will use the CDC workplace model and additional proven resources.  The process we use is:

  1. Assess:  Complete and submit Health ScoreCard.
  2. Plan:  Develop a Health Improvement Plan with at least one objective.
  3. Implement:  We’ll help through monthly assistance calls and “office hours”, time dedicated to helping you implement your wellness plan.
  4. Evaluate:  Share challenges, opportunities and success.  Celebrate your worksite’s wellness!
