What do you enjoy about being a Wellness Partner?
The opportunities to learn about wellness activities are endless! Wellness Partners have the ability to connect employees to a variety of wellness tools from health, social, emotional, mental, and financial. Through wellness strategies we can find and keep the best employees, and workers can stay on track to reach their long-term goals. That means having employees who are less stressed and more productive.
What wellness activities/initiatives does your department like to participate in?
The College of Medicine is a highly competitive environment, and we enjoy a variety of challenges, activities, and initiatives throughout the year. Of particular interest, we continually enjoy the walking challenge and the water challenge. These two activities instill camaraderie and teamwork as most teams bond throughout the experience.
