This includes an Employee Assistance Program, a wellness program through Sharecare that incentivizes healthy choices, and wellbeing webinars offered throughout the year. Past webinars have covered topics such as nutrition, suicide prevention and awareness, developing resiliency, processing grief, and purposeful new year’s resolutions.
