The Year Of Worksite Wellness 10 Feb 14

Governor Dayton has proclaimed 2014 the “Year of Worksite Wellness” in Minnesota, and officials are challenging CEOs to get on board with their companies. Susan Bishop with the state Health Department says the focus is on increasing physical activity, healthy diet and not smoking. The program works with employers to make physical activity more available during the work day and have healthy foods available. Bishop says a survey shows that 80% of employers are interested, while half actually have some kind of wellness program already.
