Healthier U is the California workplace wellness program— by state employees for state employees.
As a Wellness Coordinator, you develop your department's wellness game plan to fit your culture—with equal input from employees and management. Healthy eating, physical activity and stress management are all ways to bring wellness into the workplace, but ultimately your Healthier U game plan depends on what works best for you and your peers.
Don't worry, be healthy. This is all voluntary. It's an opportunity for good fun and might include activities such as healthy food potlucks, friendly competitions, mid-day walk breaks, stretching sessions or whatever your team comes up with.
Healthier U requires input from employees at every phase of the game. Employees who want to take a lead role may become a booster or join an advisory workgroup. The Wellness Coordinator keeps the team focused on achieving its goals.
