Workplace Wellness Event

Workplace wellness encompasses programs aimed at promoting the health and well-being of employees, covering areas such as fitness, nutrition, and mental health support. HARC initiated the Annual Workplace Wellness Event to foster a culture of health within local organizations. Initially, the event focused on recognizing health-promoting workplaces through awards. However, in pursuit of a more engaging and educative approach, we transitioned to hosting symposiums. This shift aims to facilitate richer discussions, learning, and the sharing of best practices among participants, furthering our collective mission of enhancing workplace wellness across the Coachella Valley.

“The COVID-19 pandemic brought unique issues and struggles to the lives of many people and organizations in the past year. The World Health Organization reports that in the first year of the pandemic there was a 25% increase in depression and anxiety worldwide. Additionally, a survey by Mind Share Partners revealed that 84% of workers said their workplace contributed to at least one mental health challenge.”
