EMPLOYEE WELLNESS PROGRAM
The mission of the Employee Wellness Program is to improve the overall health of LCSD1 employees by offering a comprehensive program that works to reduce health risks, educate, and support employees. We offer a Wellness Incentive Plan, wellness challenges, wellness courses and other resources to educate our employees about wellness and encourage healthy habits.
A monthly wellness e-newsletter is sent to every LCSD1 employee on topics such as stress management, physical activity and nutrition. Schools can choose specific school-based challenges for 4-6 weeks on losing weight, eating better, moving more or reducing stress.
Wellness Challenges are employee driven, self monitoring behavior change programs. Each challenge is 4 to 6 weeks and includes a log sheet with an incentive and helpful email tips sent weekly. Staff and spouses are welcome to participate in these challenges.
