    Worksite Wellness Programs: Creating a sustainable and engaging program

    Worksite Wellness programs have become a critical component of many company’s benefit packages.  While best practices exist, company’s often find it difficult to replicate these ideas due to lack of people and/or monetary resources.  During this presentation participants will be energized that regardless of the status of their current worksite wellness programs (or lack thereof!)  there are a number of realistic ideas that they can implement immediately that will create increased engagement and excitement.

    Mary Pozatek, Lead Wellness Consultant

    Mary leads the Northwestern Benefit Corporation’s Corporate Wellness initiatives, where she is responsible for developing, implementing and maintaining worksite wellness programming for each of her clients. She is a Certified Worksite Wellness Consultant and has achieved Faculty status from WELCOA (Wellness Council of America.) 

    With over 10 years’ experience in the health promotion field and a Master’s Degree from the University of Florida in Exercise and Sports Science, Mary is able to create impactful and culture changing initiatives and programs regardless of client size or available resources.

    Mary started her career in the field as a certified athletic trainer which led her to Baptist Medical Center where she was hired from the Physical Therapy Department to start the Healthy for Life Worksite Wellness Program for their 8000 employees. 

    In her current role, Mary has been able to not only assist clients build programming that has created measureable results, with many earning Atlanta’s Healthiest Employer awards and the American Heart Association Fit Friendly Company designation but has also been a part of the internal wellness program at Northwestern Benefit Corporation.  This program has created a culture of wellness around the office that has grown year after year and has shown improvements in biometric data and participation rates in the high 80%s.  Mary has a passion for wellness and improving the health of employer populations and believes that every company should begin the journey to invest in the health and well-being of their employees no matter where they are at the current time.
