Wellness AtoZ, an initiative of the Greater Phoenix Chamber Foundation, aims to make Arizona and the Greater Phoenix region known as a destination for healthy living. Since March, the Wellness AtoZ team has been working to provide important resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic with a focus on helping businesses—and their employees—gain access to actionable health and wellness information during this unprecedented time, and alter existing programs to follow current social distancing guidelines.
Here’s a look at how Wellness AtoZ supported Arizonans during this time.
- LiveWELL Now!: While many people transitioned to working from home, Wellness AtoZ put together a weekly communication to help employees and their families stay healthy and well while many practiced physical distancing and transitioned to new work and learning environments.
- Wellness AtoZ Day: This year’s Wellness AtoZ Day looked a little different. Due to restrictions on in-person gatherings, this fun, annual event moved online! On May 17th, the WellnessAtoZ Community celebrated health and wellness virtually by participating in activities with key partner organizations. These activities ranged from home work-ins with Planet Fitness and live cooking demos with Nuuaria, to donating blood with the American Red Cross and virtual mediation with M2 Wellbeing.
- WorkWell Forums: Through the WorkWELL pillar, the Wellness AtoZ team hosts quarterly WorkWell Forums to connect HR and wellness professionals—allowing them to share best practices and develop new wellness strategies for their organization! You can check out the latest meetings here. Interested in speaking at or attending the next WorkWell forum in September? Contact a Wellness AtoZ representative at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the coming months, Wellness AtoZ will continue to offer accessible, free wellness information to help businesses support their employees and help Arizonans incorporate wellness into their daily lives. Interested in getting involved with Wellness AtoZ? You can join the movement by becoming a Wellness AtoZ Employer.
