United Counseling Service has been recognized for their wellness program by the Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports. The award was presented to members of UCS’ Wellness Committee at the 2017 Vermont Worksite Wellness Awards & Conference held on March 23rd in Burlington. This is the fourth year UCS has received this award.
“Our wellness program empowers employees to make healthy lifestyle choices and promotes a culture of overall wellness. We work to provide fun and easy opportunities for staff to participate and reach their goals of living a healthy lifestyle,” said Worksite Wellness Coordinator, Amy Fela.
The Wellness Program at UCS offers a lifestyle initiative including a weight loss support group, a group designed to promote activity and nutrition, healthy cooking classes, supportive training for races, and they also underwrite a portion of local gym membership fees and training classes for interested employees.
