It's All About You and Your Health!
All employees on Franklin County Government's payroll, who receive benefits, are eligible to participate in the W.O.W. Employee Wellness Program. Participation is strictly voluntary, however, Franklin County strongly encourages all employees to participate. The majority of programs are conducted during normal working hours. The Wellness Committee will try to maximize convenience for employees and to minimize disruption of work activities. When possible, programs are limited to one hour or less and may be offered at various sites. An exception is the Employee Health Fair. The Wellness Committee will also tailor programs to suit a department's specific needs.
The majority of activities are provided at no cost or at a shared cost between Franklin County and the employee, however, a minimal fee may be charged to cover the cost of implementing special programs or to serve as an incentive to participate.
The risk identification activities may identify health problems in individual employees. Once identified, a more appropriate health care provider should manage such problems. The Wellness Program should not be confused with an employee health service and will not provide evaluation or treatment of any specific health problems.
