News and Events
You’ll remember, we designed a new learning opportunity for businesses building wellness programs called Wellness Council of Iowa (WCI) Wellness Huddle. And, people have really loved the experience.
What is a WCI Wellness Huddle?
A WCI Wellness Huddle event is part networking, part learning, and part mentoring, and more. Every Wellness Huddle event has a theme that small group work sessions (we call Huddles) are centered around. >>Learn more about Wellness Huddles here.

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.
Free Employee Interest Survey Tool from the Wellness Council of Iowa can help you understand what your employees want for wellness programming.
Lots of companies think they know the answer to the question, “Do You Know What Your Employees Want In A Health Promotion Program?” But, you’d be surprised at how many would be wrong. So what’s the best way to know the interests of your employees? Just ask them!
To help you in your programming efforts, we’ve developed a useful tool other companies have implemented to find out what their employees really want and need from a health promotion program. Recently, Sue Wilber, from the Cedar Rapids Community School District (CRCSD), used the tool to get a better picture of what teachers and staff were interested in.
“I utilized the survey created by the Wellness Council of Iowa to get employee feedback so we could be sure and target our efforts to the needs of our staff,” commented Wilber. “We knew our wellness program would only be successful if we targeted the activities that employees wanted to see at CRCSD.”
The Wellness Council Employee Interest Survey Tool is short and simple (only 10 question), but provides honest and anonymous insight on what your employees want in wellness programming.
