Wellness champions needed
The Wellness Committee is developing a new role to involve even more City employees. Later in the year, there will be an opportunity for employees who are passionate about wellness to serve as wellness champions in their department. Wellness champions will advocate for health and wellness in their area and help the committee communicate its programs and initiatives. Look for more information coming on this opportunity in Minneapolis Matters.
