U.S. employees spend an average of 50 hours a week at work. Because it is where we spend the majority of our waking hours, worksites have an opportunity to impact their employees’ health by encouraging healthy habits and creating an environment that supports healthy choices.

In line with the Plan’s goal of helping members to lead healthier lives, we provide worksite wellness supports for state agencies, universities, community colleges, and public schools. Worksite wellness efforts have been shown to improve employees’ health, safety, and job satisfaction.

The State Health Plan works to help members adopt healthier lifestyle habits – including healthy eating, physical activity, stress management, and tobacco cessation. We also strive to help members with health conditions better manage their health. We encourage members to participate in their worksites’ wellness programs.
