Research shows sitting for too long is actually killing you! Okay, maybe not. But, it does show sitting for more than 60 minutes actually erases all of the hard work you put into your morning or lunchtime exercise routine. We’ve developed this handy flier/poster for use to use at your workplace to encourage employees to move for 3 minutes after sitting for 60 minutes. It’s a simple idea that really packs a punch.
When it comes to helping employees live better and manage their health care a preventative care program can go long way to making a difference. WCI member Key Cooperative, based in Roland and with locations throughout Central Iowa, got creative when they decided to nudge their workforce toward preventative health practices. Their programming is the first feature in our new “What Works Series”. Download this document (don’t forget to check out the back page too) to learn more about this simple and effective incentive program.
Don’t forget to visit InfoPoint, our “Members-Only” web site, to find additional Medical Self Care materials.
There are many fantastic perks to being a member of the Wellness Council of Iowa/WELCOA. Your membership dues provides incentive campaigns, wellness bulletins, case studies, interviews, social networking, connection and more. Perhaps one of the most valuable items is the annual webinar series.
Over the course of the year, 11 webinars (nearly one per month) will be conducted by Nationally-recognized industry leaders on a variety of subjects important to wellness professionals. They’re easy to participate in and well-worth your time. New this year are beginner, or intermediate/expert level Well Workplace certifications.
