Worksite Wellness

ETWR logo

The average employee spends a significant portion of each day working. Because of this fact, it is vital for employers to encourage and promote wellness at their place of business. Complete wellness entails physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, occupational and social aspects.

In collaboration with the East Tennessee Wellness Roundtable, the Knox County Health Department (KCHD) can provide educational materials, support, and guidance to assist employers in making "well" choices for and with their employees.

Bronze, Gold, and Platinum Recognition Program

ETWR Logo Clear

The ETWR has a three-tiered recognition program, awarding Bronze, Gold, and Platinum status to recognize East Tennessee worksites that exemplify excellence in worksite wellness. ETWR takes a systems approach to worksite wellness by targeting evidence-based built environment and policy changes.

To achieve ETWR Bronze, Gold, or Platinum status, worksites must demonstrate a supportive wellness infrastructure and must meet a certain number of criteria related to disease monitoring and prevention, physical activity, nutrition, mental health and substance abuse and tobacco use and prevention.

Why apply for recognition?

Recipients of ETWR Recognition gain publicity through the ETWR website, social media, and local news releases. Additionally, KCHD has received grant funding to help Knox County organizations implement evidence-based strategies and to achieve cultures of the health at their workplace. Visit www.etwellness.org to learn more about the application process, available resources, and to see examples of how KCHD grant funds have been used to support employee wellness.
