"Having the opportunity to be a part of the Get Fit Itasca (GFI) Worksite Wellness program allowed our agency to take pause, to learn what we could do to not only keep our employees healthier, our consumers that we serve as well. We implemented all of our goals and exceeded our expectations. Without the staff at GFI and the investment of the full team, it would have been difficult to reach our goals. We are now smoke free at all our sites, smoke free in vehicles, have privacy for breastfeeding, chose a different vendor for healthy snacks, have healthier meals catered in for special events, and have encouraged staff to stay healthier for emotional, spiritual and physical well-being."-Audery Moen, Northland Counseling Center
Grand Village created a wellness board at their site. It is updated with tips, articles, and other wellness materials for the employees.
This water infuser was a great addition to Grand Village. It is a healthy option that is available to all of the employees!
"There are several different things we have achieved through the Worksite Wellness initiative. We have healthy vending stations, a breastfeeding/pumping room and hydration stations at both the Itasca Resource Center (IRC) and Courthouse locations. We have updated our Wellness Policy, and continue to work on tobacco cessation and stress management awareness. We appreciate all that we have learned through the Worksite Wellness Collaborative."
