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.

Grokker Expands into Employee Financial Wellness

Grokker is expanding into financial well-being with our new “7 Steps to Financial Wellness” program. Designed by renowned financial analyst, planner and author, Manisha Thakor, the program empowers employees to better manage their money and reduce their financial stress via a series of informative, fun, easy-to-follow videos. Manisha Thakor, who earned her MBA from Harvard Business School, is a regular contributor to CNN, CNBC, NPR and The Wall Street Journal. 

Creating a Holistic Wellness Program: How to Go Beyond Exercise and Nutrition

What does “wellness” mean? Is it about eating right and exercising? Is it about feeling happy? About having good relationships with others? All of the above certainly come under the wellness banner, which means that ideally, they should be part of an employee wellness program. A holistic wellness program addresses aspects of health and well-being, and goes beyond just physical needs. And such well-rounded programs are becoming a force within HR departments: According to a recent survey from Gallagher Benefit Services, 34 percent of wellness programs now include financial counseling, 28 percent offer volunteer opportunities, and 27 percent offer community engagement.
