Employee Wellness Program

General Information

The mission of the state employee wellness program, California WorksWell, is to promote a work environment that encourages healthy lifestyle choices, decreases the risk of illness and disease, and enhances employee effectiveness and well-being.

CalHR acts in a leadership role to help departments develop a healthy worksite and implement a proactive onsite wellness program that encourages employee engagement at all levels.

Wellness Coordinators in each State department work to offer wellness education or program activities and healthy information for you and your fellow employees.

We encourage you to stay informed about health issues that affect you. Take steps to maintain or improve your health and use the resources at your department and on this website to help make your life a long and healthy one.
