    How to participate in the program

    Join us on this work-to-wellness journey through the certified healthy department program. Your participation helps us assess awareness, engagement and interest in future employee wellness programs. The program helps foster a culture of well-being and supports program coordinators to meet department wellness goals.

    1. Announce your desire to remain a certified healthy department at your next staff meeting and assess your department’s interest in pursuing this recognition.
    2. Inform colleagues they will be required to complete a less than 10-minute anonymous survey to evaluate their awareness and departmental engagement of wellness initiatives within two weeks.
    3. Remind colleagues a 75% participation survey completion rate is required for certification.
    4. Send ASU Employee Wellness an Excel spreadsheet with your employees' names and email addresses to send Question Pro surveys.
