Dear Colleagues,

Hope this newsletter finds you safe and well! Speaking of wellness, there has never been a better time to put your health and wellness first. With that in mind, we are READY to roll out our new well-being portal! Whether you’d like to spend more time in nature or in the comfort of your home, the new well-being platform, powered by WebMD ONE, makes it easy to personalize your plan based on your unique interests! As always, we’ll be there to inspire you on your wellness journey every step of the way through various prizes and incentives. This new wellbeing platform creates a personalized experience based on your interest and points you toward some fun resources such as health assessment, daily habits, media library, personal health record, and various campus-wide and personal challenges. Best part – you can access it online or on your phone, and it is compatible with many fitness devices and apps! Where do we sign up? Check your email for Wellness Wednesday newsletter to get started – more info to follow soon!

Prevention is essential wellness. Please continue to follow the precautions set by CDC – wear masks, maintain social distance, wash hands, and follow protocol outlined in our Campus Reopening Plan. Check the dashboard often, and if you are experiencing symptoms or have had direct contact with an individual positive for COVID, stay at home, call your supervisor, and consult with your healthcare provider! The College has various accommodations such as ability to utilize COVID leave or work from home, if applicable, that are meant to assist you if you find yourself in one of these situations. Please do not hesitate to reach out to HR for more information, whether you are a staff member, faculty member, or a student employee. We are here to help you keep us all safe!

Last but certainly not least, we would like to thank you for sending employee shout outs our way! We have a few to recognize in the upcoming weeks, but please keep them coming. We have received quite a bit of feedback regarding the good will such recognition spreads in our workplace.

Stay well,
