Be sure to share the information from this webpage with anyone you think might be interested. The mission of our #healthysaratoga movement is to ensure that Saratoga County is one of the healthiest places to live and work. For us to succeed, we need more individuals to do what they can to improve their health and wellness. The Health and Wellness Week is one of four signature events we will run in 2016 to encourage and help people living and working in Saratoga County to achieve their health and wellness goals.
Take the #healthysaratoga Health & Wellness pledge
Is your organization or company willing to support the mission of the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce’s #healthysaratoga movement which is to establish Saratoga County as one of the healthiest places to live and work?
Do you recognize that healthy employees tend to be happier and more productive, and that there are ways in which employers, just like you, can positively support the achievement of the personal wellness goals of your employees?
Does your organization or company strive at all times to create and support a safe and healthy workplace?
If you answered to one or all three of these questions, we invite you to take this Employee Wellness Pledge. Use the pledge form to share with us the steps you are taking or plan to take this year to support the health and wellness of your employees. Completed pledges can be emailed to Sara Thornton at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to the Chamber at 518-587-0318.
Taking this pledge will automatically include your company as a partner in our #healthysaratoga movement to make Saratoga County one of the healthiest places to live. From time to time, we will promote the list of companies that have taken the pledge to showcase your commitment to this initiative and to inspire others to join the movement. We will also use the information we receive to share best practices in an effort to encourage other local organizations to follow your lead in supporting the health and wellness of your employees. Every organization that takes the pledge will receive a decal that you can display in your facility to let everyone know that you are helping us to ensure that Saratoga County is one of the healthiest places to live and work.
Health and Wellness Council
Chaired by Susan Halstead, of Family Vision Care Center, the Chamber's Health and Wellness Council is responsible for leading the charge to ensure that Saratoga County is one of the healthiest places to live and work in the US. To achieve this goal, the Council has created the #healthysaratoga movement in order to showcase the many events, organizations and resources available to local employers and residents that will help them to achieve their health and wellness goals.
Membership in the Chamber's Health and Wellness Council is open to any member that is interested in health and wellness from any perspective. Please send an email to Sara Thornton at email@example.com if you'd like to be added to the Council. The Council annually hosts a countywide celebration of National Employee Wellness in June and a Health & Wellness Week in January.
