Workplace Wellness Program
The Mount Wachusett Community College Wellness Committee promotes physical and emotional well-being among members of the campus community through relevant activities, information sharing, and resources.
Our vision is to foster the adoption of a wellness culture across the college, and to offer such benefits as improved health, greater feelings of well being, heightened personal performance, reduced sick leave and reduced medical expenditures.
Wellness at Mount Wachusett Community College
This program, still in development stage, is based on the Massachusetts Plan for Worksite Wellness. The vision of the
Massachusetts Worksite Wellness Initiative is that all worksites in Massachusetts will provide social, cultural and physical environments that support optimum employee health and well-being. Our mission is to promote worksite wellness through information, training, regulation and technical assistance.
The goal of this process is to create a detailed plan for the wellness program, identify the steps needed to realize that vision, document those steps in a plan that works, and is easy to understand and implement. The program has three goals related to three outcome areas: employees, worksites and communities.
- Worksite Wellness program strategies will improve the health and well-being of all employees across the Commonwealth.
- Worksite Wellness will result in healthier worksites that result in positive returns on investment for employees and employers.
- Worksite Wellness will support the creation of healthy communities and improved health systems and public policies that improve population health.
