Employee well-being is a key component to creating thriving workplaces. Americans working full time spend more than one third of their day, Monday – Friday, at work. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, prioritizing wellness in the workplace has been proven to improve productivity, lower stress, and reduce risk for chronic disease. Wellness also contributes to higher energy levels, lower turnover rates, and improved morale. Price Waterhouse Cooper (PwC) indicated that every $1 spent on a mentally healthier workplace yields $2.3 dollars in benefit to the institution (2014). 

Our Center offers a variety of programs and services that target topics including stress, nutrition, and professional well-being.  More information can be found on the pages below.
