Working on Wellness (WOW) at Work is Meredith’s faculty/staff wellness program. The program is free and open to all Meredith employees.
WOW offers exercise and educational programming to increase personal awareness regarding each employee’s health and wellness; current health risk status, opportunities for risk reduction, programming for improvements, and coaching for the implementation of positive lifestyle change.
We do this by offering each employee the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs. Some programs take place on campus, and some are individual and self-directed. All programs are designed to recognize and support healthy lifestyle habits and by being a member of WOW, your efforts are noticed.
Did you know that each year when Meredith representatives evaluate our health-care provider, all employees benefit by being in shape, or on the right track to fitness? It is true. It is more cost-effective for insurance providers to cover healthy individuals, so we all benefit.
