Welcome to Workplace Wellness
What is Workplace Wellness?
Get Fit Itasca works with businesses to create a culture of health and wellness within their organization. We meet 1 on 1 to discuss steps you would want to take. We also want to bring businesses together in a collaborative model for the year. The collaborative model allows businesses to share their experiences with each other. As everyone has a unique perspective, we are able to learn from everyone's experiences through celebrating each success and working together on how to overcome each barrier. The collaborative meets as often as everyone decides that year, typically once a month. Each meeting discusses a different topic relevant to healthy workplaces, decided by the collaborative, and involves presentations from experts on these topics. We can create goals and visions for each workplace, work on implementation strategies, and build resources to create and sustain a healthier workplace!
