Madison Region Worksite Wellness Week

Worksite Wellness Week is a local awareness week designed to celebrate our region’s dedication to employee wellness programs.

The worksite has become an ideal setting for health promotion, due to rising healthcare costs, the increasing incidence of preventable health conditions, and the fact that the average adult spends 8-12 hours a day at work. Employers across the region are engaging in worksite wellness with positive results in employee health, reduced absenteeism, and increased productivity, engagement, and retention.

Your business can participate in Worksite Wellness Week by offering a health-related education, promotion, or activity for your employees; or by attending a training session on effective worksite wellness programs.

Worksite Wellness Week is hosted by the Madison Region Healthcare Leadership Collaborative in partnership with MadREP. Wellness Week coincides with Employee Health and Fitness Month in May 2011.
