WEWILL WorkHealthy Worksite Wellness Recognition Program

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. A list of questions assessing the implementation of evidence-based worksite wellness strategies and interventions appears for each of these six main areas of worksite wellness:

1.       Health Promotion/Education

2.       Physical Activity

3.       Behavioral Health

4.       Environmental Health

5.       Nutrition

6.       Safety

Award Eligibility Criteria

The WEWILL WorkHealthy Award program is a 2-year award which includes five levels of recognition: Honorable Mention, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and the Innovation Award. Worksites will be awarded based on the following criteria:

Honorable Mention: awarded to worksites that are working towards achieving an award level. Worksites must complete the WEWILL WorkHealthy Award Application.

Bronze Award: awarded to worksites that can demonstrate steps in working toward improving employee health. Worksites must achieve a minimum of 50% (or 54/106 points) on the WEWILL WorkHealthy Award Application.

Silver Award: awarded to worksites that exceed the Bronze award through additional sustained wellness efforts. Worksites must achieve a minimum of 75% (or 80/106 points) on the WEWILL WorkHealthy Award Application.

Gold Award: awarded to worksites that exceed the Bronze and Silver award. Worksites must achieve a minimum of 90% (or 96/106 points) on the WEWILL WorkHealthy Award Application and write an essay describing a positive health outcome that has resulted from their health and wellness initiatives. Each essay will be evaluated based on the criteria outlined in the essay prompt. Refer to the essay prompt in the application for further details.

Innovation Award (optional): awarded to a limited number of worksites that submit an essay describing a particular policy or health initiative that stands out from typical worksite wellness efforts. Each essay will be evaluated based on the criteria outlined in the essay prompt. Refer to the essay prompt in the application for further details. This essay is not required in order to be considered for a WEWILL WorkHealthy Award, but is required in order to be considered for the Innovation Award. Additionally, an award (up to $250 in value) will be presented to Innovation Award recipients. 

Application Due Date and Award Notification: Applications are due June 30, 2017. The Will County MAPP Collaborative Chronic Care Action Team will evaluate the WEWILL WorkHealthy Award applications to determine the award designations. All worksites will be notified by July 2017.
