Published: December 4, 2020 Author: Staff reports

With the semester coming to a close, we understand that employees may be seeking additional wellbeing support.

University employees are encouraged to prioritize their wellbeing by utilizing the resources available to them. The following programs and offerings are offered to employees through a partnership between Human Resources and WellWorks.

Benefits Participating Employees: Participate in Healthy OHIO

  • Free Health Screenings at Athens WorkHealth Clinic (Castrop Center, 3rd floor) through December 31, 2020. No financial incentive this year due to COVID, but we’re encouraging people to still get their screening to stay on top of their numbers.
  •  Earn $60 on Virgin Pulse by taking the Health Check by December 31, 2020 – find it in the Programs tab of Virgin Pulse.

    • Virtual Memberships are available in 1-, 4- and 6- month packages. Employees pay only $7/month.
