A Southern California company is promoting an employee wellness program that goes beyond physical fitness. So reports ModernHealthcare.
At Beach Cities Health District, employees not only have access to a 17,000 square-foot fitness facility, but also to services that address mental, spiritual and financial needs. From personal finance classes and community volunteering to career mentorship and walking groups, “integration is the linchpin of what we do,” says Megan Vixie, human resources director.
“That’s the difference between having a culture of wellness and a program,” Vixie says. “When we changed CEOs last year, everything we built could have completely crumbed, but it’s a self-sustaining system that can’t be thrown off course because its such a part of who we are and what we do.”
