your wellness is our mission!
GET STARTED (Pre-intervention Screenings and Assessments)
As part of a comprehensive worksite wellness program, the Lake Cumberland District Health Department can provide several screenings and assessments to give employers a thorough knowledge of their staff’s general health status and attitudes, as well as feedback in regards to the organization’s environment and culture in relation to Worksite Wellness.
Potential Screenings and Assessments Include
CDC Worksite Health Score Card
The Centers for Disease Control Worksite Health Score Card, is a tool designed to help employers assess the extent to which they have implemented evidence-based health promotion interventions, helps them to identify gaps in their health promotion programs, and assists them in the prioritization of high-impact strategies for health promotion at their worksites.
Employee Interest and Needs Survey
The Employee Interest and Needs Survey is utilized to assess the employees’ overall level of interest in regards to improving their health. It also identifies which intervention strategies the employees would find most beneficial.
Health Calculator and Wellness Profile
Developed by experts at the LCDHD, the Health Calculator and Wellness Profile is a robust health education tool which empowers individuals to not only better understand their current health status, but also provides suggestions for how to improve such through preventive measures and health screenings.
For those agencies contracting with us to provide Worksite Wellness support, we can combine your employees’ results into a group report which will provide a snapshot of the health of your personnel as a whole and guide intervention efforts.
