United Counseling Service was recognized for their outstanding wellness program with an Excellence in Worksite Wellness award from the Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports. The award was presented to members of UCS’ Wellness Committee at the 2016 Vermont Worksite Wellness Awards & Conference held on March 30th in Burlington.
“Our wellness program aims to support staff in making healthy lifestyle choices and promoting 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 Wellness Program Coordinator Amy Fela.
The Wellness Program at UCS offers fun weight loss challenges such as “You Lose, You Win,” healthy cooking classes, supportive training for 5K races, and they also underwrite a portion of local gym membership fees and training classes for interested employees.
This is the third time in as many years that UCS has been recognized for their wellness program by The Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports.
