Active RVA at Work

Best Practices: Proactive Wellness

Company-sponsored health and wellness fairs can provide valuable health information and screening services to employees, and are a great opportunity to bring these programs directly to your staff to make them even more accessible and encourage increased employee participation. Holding a fair helps promote workplace wellness, physical activity programs and health education. Examples of the types of screenings offered at most fairs include:

  • Cholesterol
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood glucose
  • Body composition
  • Vision

In addition, many companies also invite vendors from area fitness and wellness organizations to set up interactive exhibits, and offer door prizes, raffles, and other giveaways as further incentive to employees who attend.
