Employee Wellness Committee
Because the MCISD highly values the health and well-being of each staff member, one of the organizations goals is a Commitment to Well-being. By implementing this goal, the MCISD is committed to offering well-being initiatives — comprehensive health and productivity programs that tackle elements such as the workforce’s emotional and mental health, social connectivity, physical health, financial education, sense of fulfillment on the job, and many other aspects.
Through this committee, employees have the opportunity to participate in different wellness initiatives that help support personal efforts to create and/or maintain healthy lifestyles. The employees are encouraged to make the “healthy choice” their preferred choice.
The overall monthly challenge that we encourage everyone to try is the Rise Up! Challenge which challenges you to stand up during 30 phone calls for the next 30 days. We all talk on the phone, so try adding standing up every time you pick up the phone. If you are chatting at work with a colleague, encourage him or her to RISE UP!
Then we have two other challenges and invite everyone to choose one to focus on in the month of March along with the Rise UP! Challenge.
One is the Go H2O which invites you to replace your non-water beverage with water for 30 day. Here is a link to the challenge: https://youtu.be/BdPIpsMEI3U
The second one is Beat Sweets which invites you to cut sugar out for 30 day. Here is a link to the challenge: https://youtu.be/YZDbmpCAgbg
Share your successes with each other!
