WEWILL WorkHealthy Worksite Wellness Recognition Program

WEWILL WorkHealthy Worksite Wellness Recognition Program

Creating a Culture of Wellness

The WEWILL WorkHealthy Worksite Wellness Recognition (WEWILL WorkHealthy Award) Program is an initiative of the Will County MAPP Collaborative Chronic Care Action Team to recognize worksites throughout Will County that are engaging in worksite wellness best practices. This program was developed to support the long-term goal of the Chronic Care Action Team to decrease obesity among Will County residents and was first implemented in 2013. The members of the Chronic Care Action Team include representatives from various organizations in Will County dedicated to improving chronic care issues.

The WEWILL WorkHealthy Award application is intended to be comprehensive. The intent is to represent a wide range of Will County worksites that are committed to improving employee health and well-being.

MAPP in Will County

In March 2013, the Will County MAPP Collaborative began preparation for the second round of MAPP, launching the Community Health Needs Assessment and Strategic Plan (CHNA) process.  This is required every three years for non-profit hospitals and every five years for local health departments.




The first round was completed on November 8, 2010,when the MAPP Steering Committee approved and adopted the MAPP Report and Community Health Plan. The Will County Board of Health approved and adopted the Community Health Plan (IPLAN) on January 19, 2011.

Launched in 2001 by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO), MAPP provides a phased process for broad based community planning in public health policy.

The 6 phases into which the MAPP process is divided are as follows: Organizing for Success, Visioning, Assessments, Strategic Issues, Goals & Strategies, and the Action Cycle. Among the benefits expected from adopting the MAPP planning process are:

  • Create a healthier community and a better quality of life.
  • Increase the visibility of public health within the community. 
  • Anticipate and manage change in the demand for and supply of health related services.
  • Create a stronger public health infrastructure. 
  • Engage the community and create community ownership for public health issues.
