Scott County Worksite Wellness Collaborative

Scott County Public Health is looking for employers to join a no-cost Workplace Wellness Collaborative designed to guide interested employers through the process of launching or enhancing an evidence-based workplace wellness initiative. Employers will learn how to better engage employees in their own health and connect with other organizations throughout Scott County.

Investing in the health of employees by creating a workplace wellness initiative is an important step an employer can take to increase productivity, improve morale and better manage health care costs. Plus, most of the best practice recommendations take little to no financial resources on the part of your organization – just staff time to plan and implement. However, through the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership, there is funding to support various efforts throughout this collaborative.

Participating employers will receive 12 months of free consultation along with tools and templates to ensure success. Through the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) funding is also available for those who join!

Any size employer is welcome. Whether your organization has a wellness initiative in place or is new to this type of work, you are invited to learn more and participate.

The new collaborative will start in January 2019. If you have any questions or if you are interested in joining, please contact Lindsay Aijala at laijala@co.scott.mn.us or 952-496-8696. View Program Flyer.
