Easy steps to get you started!

This toolkit contains specific information and strategies on building a wellness program for a worksite. There is not a cookie cutter program, because each place of employment is unique. Companies differ in culture, mission, goals, management teams, work sections, and individual employee needs. This toolkit can be used by each worksite to fit their needs. Each section provides guidance to develop a wellness program that can fit every facet of a company from the top down. References, tools and appendices for the contents of this document are located at the end of each best practice. The information, tools, samples, resources, appendices and references can be used to build a tailored wellness program. Downloadable PDFs are provided below. Choose to download the entire toolkit or choose each section separately.
