Support For a Healthier Mind and Body
Physical and emotional well-being contribute to your success in work and in life. Our programs and resources encourage employees to learn more about taking better care of themselves and making positive lifestyle choices.
The FGCU Employee Wellness committee aims to establish and maintain a worksite that encourages environmental and social support for a healthy lifestyle. We promote and encourage wellness practices for faculty and staff through education and programs.
Our programs encourage personal and professional productivity as well as physical and mental well-being. Some of the benefits employees can experience through participation:
- Increased well-being, improved self-image and higher self-esteem
- Improved coping skills with stress or other health factors
- Reduced risk for developing chronic or life-threatening conditions
- Increased motivation to improve health
