Healthy Meetings and Activity Guidelines
A goal of the Culture of Health is to increase employee access to work-site well-being programming and provide support for employees’ unique health and well-being needs through policy, systems, and environmental changes. The findings of our 2015 Culture of Health countywide employee needs and program interest survey showed that county employees prefer wellness-related activities or programs to be offered on-site. Policy and environmental changes to support and reduce barriers to healthy choice programs and opportunities are being driven, in part, by this survey.
As a result of the program interest survey, Board Policy H-35 was developed by a team comprised of Risk Management, Safety, Occupational Health, Employee Assistance Services, Employee Relations, Workers’ Compensation, Culture of Health and the Disability Access Office. Board Policy H-35 is designed to remove barriers and support the overall goal of creating a culture of health and well-being. The policy encourages healthy lifestyles and will promote diverse activities and locations by allowing employees to initiate and take responsibility for coordination of health related activities at county facilities.
