WVU’s Office of Health Promotion and Wellness has announced the release of the WVU Employee Wellness Toolkit.
Daniel Thompson, an intern with OHPW, attended meetings with faculty and staff to gather information for the Toolkit. Members of OHPW Priority Action Teams and the Advisory Council meet throughout the year to share well-being priorities for their campuses.
“In our discussions, we found that we needed a one-stop shop for employees to find ideas for keeping themselves well at home and at work,” said Amy Sidwell, OHPW Program Director. “To our knowledge, an employee wellness toolkit had never been developed for WVU faculty and staff.”
The Toolkit is organized by WVU’s six well-being priorities:
It includes resources available at the University, as well as best practices from other institutions and workplace wellness organizations.
The WVU Employee Wellness Toolkit is available on the OHPW website.
“Most colleges and universities offer a wide array of resources for their student population regarding wellness,” Thompson said. “However, students are not the only group on campus in need of wellness resources. There is a clear need for similar services geared toward our faculty and staff.”
Thompson is a Health and Well-being major in the College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences. Daniel’s internship program coordinator was Erin Jordan.
