Good morning! I wanted to share with you some information on Wellness Committees. If you are just thinking of starting one or if you have one that needs help staying accountable all year round there are many resources available. A great place to start is http://www.eatsmartmovemorenc.com/Worksites/Toolkit/WsTk_Committee.html. Under the Committee Workbook there are articles, tip sheets and templates galore.
Now is a good time to plan your wellness year, if you haven't already. Be sure to start with a survey to your employees to see what they liked in the past, what would motivate them this year and what types of things they would like to see to challenge them through out the year. Offering an incentive (even a small one) to take the survey is a great way to insure plenty of participation and feedback.
Question for the group: What has worked for your company to keep your Wellness Committee on track through out the year? What roadblocks have you encountered? How have you overcome them?
