A Happy Worksite is a Healthy Worksite
The Center has over a decade of experience providing on-site wellness programs to local employers, and we serve a multitude of industries ranging from law offices to wineries to production facilities – from large employers with over 1,000 employees to smaller sites with 30 employees, all with proven success. The Center’s worksite wellness program engages and empowers individuals to adopt healthy habits, a key strategy to lower their risk of developing health issues through lifestyle change.
On-site worksite wellness classes cover a variety of health topics and are offered as standalone sessions or a progressive series. Add a 30-minute interactive food demonstration to any class for an additional fee. Build a program that fits your needs!

The Center takes pride in the efficacy of our programs, so evaluation is standard in our worksite wellness package. Attendees will be surveyed pre- and post-session on individual knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Success will be measured by participation and engagement in classes and improvements reported in participant assessments. Aggregate data will be shared with the employer after the presentation.
