The City of Greeley Builds a Stronger Workforce Community with Grokker

The employees of the City of Greeley are dispersed across their growing Colorado town. Administrative staff works in a traditional office setting, for instance, while firefighters and public works employees are literally out and about. This means that it’s been difficult to create a feeling of “togetherness” among the workforce, many of whom never get the chance to interact face-to-face. It also means it’s been challenging to develop wellbeing programs that reach and engage everyone with the same levels of convenience and fun.

How to Include Disabled Employees in Wellness Activities

Nearly one in five adult Americans has some kind of disability according to the U.S. Census Bureau — which means your workplace likely has a percentage of employees with physical, mental, or sensory limitations. And since more workers are retiring later, you should expect an increase in employees on the job with age-related disabilities. These employees may be eager to participate in your wellness program, but don’t know if there’s a place for them.

How Do You Define Wellness? Flexible Approaches Are Better than One-Size-Fits-All

What does employee wellness mean to you? Is it about improving employee productivity? Is it about providing programs that will appeal to talent?
