Wellness

At Employee and Family Resources we believe that wellness is more than being in shape, eating healthy, and being free from chronic disease. EFR emphasizes balance and well-being across the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, environmental, spiritual, financial, and occupational aspects of one’s life. When one area is out of balance or has been neglected it can be very difficult to maintain a healthy mind, body, and spirit.

Our Premier Wellness benefit through Employee and Family Resources helps organizations create or enhance a culture of wellness in the workplace. By electing this benefit, leaders in your organization will have access to high level consulting with a wellness expert, turnkey wellness programs, and ongoing education for employees. Our offerings include:

  • Wellness Consulting:EFR’s Wellness Manager will help leaders in your organization develop a plan to implement wellness programs and activities in the workplace. The Wellness Manager will administer the EFR Culture Audit, help develop interest surveys and wellness committees, consult with wellness committee members, provide ongoing program planning, assistance, and more!
  • Wellness Training:Your organization will receive four (4) hours of wellness trainings each contract year. You may choose from a variety of wellness themed trainings with topics including, but not limited to, better sleep habits, sneaking exercise into the workday, and improving financial literacy! Trainings are in person and 60 minutes long. Our trainings come with practical solutions that will help employees enhance well-being.
  • Culture Audit/SWOT Analysis/Action Plan: The best way to create wellness programs that make an impact is to start with a Culture Audit. The EFR Culture Audit is a confidential, electronic survey for leaders and employees to help measure the existing culture of wellness in your organization. After completion of the Culture Audit, the Wellness Manager will provide a score, assist with a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis, and action plan for enhancing the culture in your organization. The Culture Audit can be taken each contract year to measure areas of growth and areas in need of further development.
  • Wellness Webinar Workshops: Your employees will have access to two (2) Wellness Webinar Workshops. Each workshop will be delivered over the course of four weeks and meet for 30 minutes each week. These workshops provide opportunities to think about, set, and work towards personal wellness goals spanning multiple dimensions of wellness. Webinars will be broadcast live and then archived so employees can participate at a time that is convenient to them.
