Kansas Worksite Wellness
Good health is good business. WorkWell KS is a statewide initiative that provides leadership and resources for businesses and organizations to support worksite health.
The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita (KUSM-W) is partnering with the Kansas Health Foundation and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas to create healthier worksites in Kansas through implementation of policies, systems, and environmental best practices.
The centerpiece of WorkWell KS centers on online worksite wellness assessments, developed by KUSM-W and KDHE. These assessments hone in on specific health priorities to give employers an overall picture of best practices they are already implementing, as well as identify opportunities for improvement. Assessments can serve as the beginning point for worksites interested in improving the health of their employees and developing comprehensive worksite wellness plans.
In addition to the assessment, worksite wellness webinars are offered to all interested employers throughout the state. These webinars cover best practices in Kansas, worksite wellness strategies, and hot topics pertaining to worksite wellness. All webinars are free. More information can be found here.
