Worksite Health Promotion

Increasing numbers of employers offer a coordinated and comprehensive set of health promotion and protection strategies to promote healthy living. Proposals should provide health fitness professionals strategies to increase employee health and physical activity. Topics include program design and evaluation, policy development, system infrastructure modifications, as well as environmental and community supports designed to encourage the health and safety of all employees and their families.

It's Time to get Functional! Re-thinking your Worksite Stretching Program

Interactive Workshop
April 1                      
9:30-11:00 AM CDT


Colleen Broersma

Historically worksite stretching programs have focused on just that - stretching, static stretching particularly. Most are “one size fits all” and not progressive or periodized. Todays’ workers encounter specific physiological demands which left unaddressed can lead to musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, reduced productivity and ultimately lost-time injury. In todays’ “Wellness Doesn’t Work” environment, this daily 7-10 minute, peer led program is dramatically cutting workman’s comp and health benefits costs, reducing MSDs, increasing productivity and employee engagement in those “hard to reach” men and women who get their hands dirty for a living. You'll learn the secrets in this interactive session.
