Employers and Community Leaders Join Together for Wellness Initiative
Last night the City of Oshkosh, Wisconsin earned the Well City USA designation from the Wellness Council Of America, WELCOA. I was honored to be part of the celebration and present a stress management keynote at the event. Oshkosh is the 13th state nationwide to receive this coveted designation.
Cities must meet wellness criteria in a minimum of 20 employers and 20% of the workforce. Oshkosh qualified for the Silver Level designation by engaging more than 30% of their workforce. More than 38,000 workers in Oshkosh have benefited from the wellness initiatives and the companies have seen a decrease in health care costs.
