Working on Wellness (WOW) is an award-winning program introduced in the spring of 2012. Programming is comprehensive and addresses a wide array of topics. Credits can be earned through the City's events, but employees can also earn credits on their own time.
Earn credits, track them in your Passport and win prizes every quarter!
At the City, we believe in cultivating a healthy and vibrant workforce, and it wouldn't be complete without the support of our family members and loved ones. We want everyone to get involved, and our wellness offerings are open to those you hold dear. Encourage them to join you on walks and bike rides, whether City-sponsored or on your own. Share all materials and invitations to events so they can come along for the fun and education. In whatever way you wish, invite your support system along on the journey!
