Iowa Employers – Interested in Valuable Safety/Wellness Resources at No Cost?

Since the physical health and safety of employees is paramount to having a successful and productive workforce, many Iowa employers have contacted me over the years seeking resources to help implement or improve their safety and/or wellness initiatives.

In the past, I have had the pleasure of working with the University of Iowa’s Healthier Workforce Center for Excellence (HWCE) on various research projects. HWCE’s recent focus in the wellness prevention and safety arena has been both impressive and forward thinking. Their desire to be a purveyor of resources to small- and middle- market employers in Iowa is admirable and well-intentioned.

Many employers, specifically smaller organizations, find themselves somewhat paralyzed on how to begin pursuing a wellness and/or safety program for their workplace. Unfortunately, they may become overwhelmed early in the process and disengage before they pursue a plan that can serve as the foundation for later alterations, experimentations and enhancements.

I am now pleased to share with you an opportunity to evaluate excellent, free resources through HWCE!

HWCE is currently seeking employers with 10 to 249 employees to provide feedback on these materials. Your input will be used to improve current resources offered by HWCE and to develop new materials. If you participate in the evaluations, you will receive these free materials as well as be given several opportunities to win $50. The first drawing will be held on November 10.

If you are interested or would like to learn more, please register at or contact Jenny Hall, HWCE’s associate director for outreach at 319-335-4200.

If you know of employers who qualify in size and may have an interest in learning more about HWCE and this particular program, I encourage you to share the link provided above.

Here’s to our collective health and safety!
