Taking the Lead for Wellness
Join your colleagues April 1-2 for this year’s Healthy County Boot Camp, where wellness industry experts and your peers will share tips, tools and resources you can use to help county employees lead healthier lives.
At-work wellness programs increase employee productivity, improve morale and boost worksite loyalty. Counties that participate in Healthy County programs reap these benefits and cut their absenteeism rates, health care costs and workers’ compensation claims.
Sign up today for this inspiring and information-packed event. You’ll go home with a refreshed perspective and the effective techniques to lead your county to wellness.
After completing this workshop, participants will understand:
- Healthy County’s mission and program updates;
- Seven programming strategies to enhance inherent motivation in worksite wellness;
- The role that a healthy workforce plays in achieving higher productivity and lower medical costs;
- The key elements in any effective advocacy effort in wellness;
- The major methods for measuring the effectiveness of worksite wellness advocacy efforts; and
- The importance of fitness programs for law enforcement teams.
Who Should Attend
- Designated wellness coordinators;
- Designated wellness sponsors; or
