WorkWell Program

Proactive Healthcare Rewards

WorkWell, which began in 1995, is a program that has been developed for all Western New England University employees encouraging them to take an active part in their own health. There are 2 main components to the program; health education and physical activity. Participation in the program is voluntary. Incentives are available to people who participate in the physical activity for 4 months consecutively. Release time from work is provided to attend educational programs and for exercise time.

The following is an outline of how the exercise/physical activity component works:

  1. Go to the Center for Health and Well-Being and sign up.
  2. If you complete the 4 month exercise program you will return to the Center for Health and Well-Being provide your signature attesting to the completion of the program, be given your incentive and be able to sign up for the next exercise session.
  3. 15 minutes of release time, up to 3 times per week, may be used for exercise (with supervisor's permission).
