Employee Wellness Committee

The Wellness Committee has been around for several years and is made up of representatives from various departments. The committee meets every month, usually on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 8:30 a.m. in the Cooperative Extension Building.

The goal of the committee is to promote health and fitness among our county employees. Healthier employees make for more productive employees. Becoming healthier and fit decreases insurance claims and time away from work, which is good for the County and especially good for the individual employee.

If your department is not represented on the committee, please talk with your Department Head about designating a representative. The committee welcomes input from all the employees.
