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.
