MASON CITY – The Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health is once again offering county businesses a unique (and FREE) opportunity to participate in a six session Worksite Wellness Programming series. The goal of this opportunity is to assist businesses in developing or enhancing employee wellness programs, policies, and system changes to improve the health of employees while improving the business’ bottom line.

The Health Department will offer six monthly workshops to worksite representatives, assisting them in four major phases of worksite wellness programming – Assessments, Policies, Behavior Interventions and Evaluations.

The workshops will be held from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM at the Health Department on the following dates:

• Tuesday, January 14, 2014
• Tuesday, February 11, 2014
• Tuesday, March 11, 2014
• Tuesday, April 8, 2014
• Tuesday, May 13, 2014
• Tuesday, August 12, 2014

The Health Department will provide materials representatives can use at their respective worksites during the course of each month as they build their employee wellness programs.

Please consider your organization’s participation in this beneficial opportunity. The process will help your business develop a sound, productive worksite wellness program built upon strong strategies and sustained by positive outcomes. (If you are a business located in Mason City, many of the strategies addressed over the six sessions will help your business achieve Blue Zones Project™ Certification.)

If your organization is interested in sending a representative to the Worksite Wellness Meetings, please contact Kelli Huinker, Health Promotion Manager at the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health by phone at 641-421-9312 or by email at by January 10, 2014.
