Complete a survey about your current workplace wellness resources and what outcomes you would like to see as a result of an enhanced wellness program. Your employees will be asked to complete a survey* about their health needs, the specific wellness activities and materials they believe they would utilize, and what they feel could help them reach their individual health goals. Findings will be used to develop evidenced-based programs for your workplace.
Local American Diabetes Association Resources
Work with your local American Diabetes Association to develop an evidenced-based healthy worksite program that meets the needs of your employees.
In addition, you can work with your local American Diabetes Association on team-building activities that take place in your community. By participating in one of the Association’s signature events, Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes or Tour de Cure, you can reinforce the physical activity components in this program and be recognized in your community as a company who is dedicated to wellness.
To learn more, the first step is to take a quick survey so we can assess your needs and begin to customize a program.
* Results from these surveys are confidential. Individual employee data will not be shared with employers.
