Wellness Works, the Wellness program for Maricopa County employees, strives to establish a work environment that promotes healthy lifestyles, decreases the risk of disease, and enhances employees quality of life.
The program encourages employees and their families to strengthen their health and well-being through physical activity, proper nutrition, self-care, and stress management.
Employee Health and Fitness Month
In recognition of National Employee Health and Fitness Month in May, Wellness Works has organized five different group walks. Walks are scheduled for Tuesday, May 20 at the Administration Building, Durango, and Public Health/MCESA campuses. On Wednesday, May 21, the Northeast Courts and Southeast Facility will have their respective group walks.
Employees are encouraged to register for the walks through Survey Monkey. Every participant will receive a water bottle at the registration table on the day of the event, and a water station will be available. Registration will begin at 6:45 a.m. and the walks will start at 7:00 a.m. (the walk at the Administration Building is in collaboration with the City of Phoenix and will start at 7:15 am, after opening remarks by invited City/County officials.) The event is on personal time, not paid time. This event will be a great team building event and a fabulous way jump start the morning!
Let's Move Maricopa County!
To compile the video we need your help (and a signed release form). Gather a few of your co-workers, get creative, have fun, keep your cell phones out, and record a short video that shows your group moving towards better health. It could be by moving through an everyday fitness routine, going for a group walk, having a healthy potluck, engaging in desk exercises; whatever it is that your group does to keep healthy.
