Together Everyone Achieves More: Changing the Conversation


Let’s change the conversation around school employee well-being –

  • From a sole focus on physical activity to a holistic approach to include all elements of well-being
  • From individual responsibility to a culture that creates opportunities and conditions to be well
  • From school employee wellness programs being a “nice to have” to a “must have”
  • From “one more thing to do” to integrated into the work day
  • From one-size-fits-all to culturally responsive
