As of March 1st, Cherry Gulch will be implementing an Employee Wellness program. Cherry Gulch has long felt that our most valuable resources are our employees and feels that self-care is extremely important. The hope of this program is to show our employees that we care about them and want to support them in being and staying healthy.
Everyday choices can help us live healthier and happier lives, both at work and at home. This program will help all Cherry Gulch Employees by increasing their knowledge about health matters and preventative measures, while exploring fun ways to be healthier. The benefits of eating healthy, increasing physical activity, quitting tobacco, reducing stress, and getting regular medical care can make a real difference in any person’s life. The program is full of different activities that will hopefully inspire everyone to participate and become healthier. We will encourage each employee to begin working toward being healthier and will encourage them in involve their families as well.
The Employee Wellness Program is divided into 12 different monthly themes. Each theme will concentrate on five different aspects of health. These aspects are: body/physical, mind/intellectual, spiritual, emotional and environmental. Service will also be added into the program through the emotional and environmental categories.
Each month all employees will receive information on the theme and a list of ideas that they can use to help improve that part of their lives. Each item will have a point value and employees can also add in their own. Some items may repeat each month as they relate to nutrition and exercise, while others will be specific to the theme of the month.
