Partnership Perk: GetActive Workplace Wellness Toolkit

Workplace Wellness Toolkit

February 2, 2018

The Greater Des Moines Partnership can help you get a jump start on your wellness with the GetActive Workplace Wellness Toolkit, aimed at helping local small businesses provide turn-key wellness programming for their employees. 

What is the GetActive Workplace Wellness Toolkit?

The GetActive Workplace Wellness Toolkit was inspired by the Greater Des Moines (DSM) business community’s support of making Iowa the healthiest state in the nation. A Capital Crossroads survey revealed that many small business owners like the idea of helping their employees remain healthy, but don’t have enough time, expertise or resources to implement a program. The GetActive Workplace Wellness Toolkit removes those barriers by arming businesses with “plug-and-play” content to help them implement a wellness program within their offices. The program is a benefit of Membership to one of The Partnership’s 23 Affiliate Chambers of Commerce in DSM and is available to them at no additional cost.

Monthly Toolkit Offerings

Each month, Chamber Member businesses may download a new one-page poster and handout that provides wellness tips, facts and resources to give employees immediate takeaways that they can implement in their daily lives. Here’s an example:

“For every hour of exercise you do, you could live two hours longer, even if you don’t start working out until you are middle-aged!”

The materials are available to view on The Partnership’s GetActive page.

Here's to your health!
