How to participate in the program

Join us on this work-to-wellness journey through the certified healthy department program. Your participation helps us assess awareness, engagement and interest in future employee wellness programs. The program helps foster a culture of well-being and provides support for program coordinators to meet department wellness goals.

  1. Announce your desire to remain a certified healthy department at your next staff meeting and assess your department’s interest in pursuing this recognition.
  2. Inform colleagues they will be required to complete a less than 10-minute anonymous survey to evaluate their current awareness and departmental engagement of wellness initiatives within a two-week timeframe.
  3. Remind colleagues a 75% participation survey completion rate is required for certification.
  4. Send ASU Employee Wellness an excel spreadsheet with the names and email addresses of your employees to send Qualtrics surveys.
