Valencia Wellness Programs on Summer Hiatus for Rebranding
A message from Mary Beth Clifton, Director, Total Rewards, Workforce Planning
After careful consideration, Valencia’s on-site exercise classes will take a hiatus this summer. While Valencia’s wellness program includes many great offerings, participation rates are actually very low across the College.
Our vision is to reevaluate and rebrand wellness at Valencia and offer a more holistic program that will encompass, not just our existing wellness scope, but a broader definition of employee well-being, including physical, emotional and financial wellness for our increasingly diverse workforce.
We are mindful of current employees utilizing the existing classes, and recently offered a two-week free trial membership in The Juice to any of the 20 Central Florida YMCA locations. These types of options will be considered as a wellness alternative if they work well for employees whose schedules and work assignments preclude their participation in campus-based wellness activities. (The offer expired Friday, April 25, 2014). Also, don’t forget that Valencia’s on-site gyms are still available to you.
Please be assured that Valencia remains devoted to the health and wellbeing of its employees and their families and committed to providing and fostering an environment where employees can participate in a variety of activities that enrich both their personal and professional lives.
Thank you for your patience as we reevaluate and redesign our programs to ensure options that are inclusive, equitable and accessible.
