The UNCG Workplace Health Network (WHN) hosted multiple meetings for employers currently engaged in workplace safety, health, and well-being. These have been held in Raleigh and Greensboro, NC and in San Diego, CA. The purpose of these meetings was to create networks of peers across companies for mutual support and to elicit priorities from those on the front lines for research, evaluation, consultation, and education needed in the field. Currently, the UNCG WHN collaborates with HealthyUNCG to offer support for our internal employee health and wellness initiatives. We utilize opportunities to test new and innovative approaches as well as opportunities to train and educate students interested in workplace safety, health, and well-being. As a part of these initiatives, HealthyUNCG partnered with UNCG Health Coaching Programs to provide health coaching services to UNCG employees. We are pilot testing this approach for its potential to be implemented in other workplaces. HealthyUNCG and the WHN also collaborate to host an annual conference for workplace health and wellness professionals called Making the Grade in Worksite Wellness.
