Project Description

Healthier U Partners–CalHR, SEIU Local 1000, State Treasurer’s Office, State Controller’s Office, CalPERS, and Kaiser Permanente

Healthier U is a state government, employees union, and health plan sponsored worksite wellness program that aims to promote physical activity of state employees at worksites. They use interventions such as online health competitions to accumulate points by eating healthy and engaging in physical activity as well as smaller scale interventions including healthy food potlucks and fitness/walk breaks organized by booster employees. The Healthier U program also works through employee-management collaboration to identify and address barriers to physical activity in the workplace.
