For SEIU represented employees at HealthPartners Woodbury Medical Clinic
Over the past year, the Employee Wellness Labor Management Committee has been working to engage SEIU members in living a healthier lifestyle and helping you achieve your wellness goals. The Committee is committed to increasing the level of your health and wellness. We believe that one way to do this is to complete the annual Health Assessment and a well being program.
To provide you assistance, support, and encouragement in completing the Health Assessment and to help you learn more about the various well being programs, a “SEIU Health Bus” will be at Woodbury Medical Clinic on September 18th.
During this time, you will have the opportunity to schedule an appointment to visit the Health Bus where several laptop computers will be available for you to complete your Health Assessment (if you haven’t done so). The results of your Health Assessment are confidential and are not shared with your leader and will not be sent to your clinic or to Human Resources. Upon completion of the Health Assessment, a health coach will be available on the Health Bus to discuss and answer any questions regarding the wide-ranging well-being programs. This process should take no more than 30 minutes from start to finish and will be without loss of pay.
If you participate in the Health Assessment and a well-being program by December 31, 2012, you will receive a $25 Target gift card.
Participation is completely voluntary.
Here are the specific details.
