25 Wellness Tips
We spoke to operators to get 25 tips from their successful health and wellness programs.
Use interns: We really try and take advantage of our [dietetic] interns. We have them create wellness tip table tents, which have been very successful. The tents feature tips such as how to eat healthy at a picnic during the summer months. The info always ties into whatever month it is. The interns gather all the information for us. They also are responsible for creating wellness walls for the employees, which feature wellness information, cooking tips and exercise ideas. They produce those in English and Spanish.
