A Worksite Wellness Collaborative



Join Heart of Hutch’s Worksite Wellness Collaborative

for Wellness Wednesdays.


Heart of Hutch is partnering with Hutchinson businesses to provide resources through a Worksite Wellness Collaborative.

Wellness Wednesdays are currently scheduled from 2pm-3pm on the 2nd Wednesday of September, November, January, March, May and July.

What to expect:
Each Wellness Wednesday event will provide attendees with worksite wellness tools and resources. This may include topic discussions, special speakers, and toolkits to bring back to your worksite. This collaborative will also be focused on networking with each other and sharing local successes and challenges related to worksite wellness.
As we kick off our first collaborative meeting in September, we’ll want to hear from YOU about what topics/resources are of most interest. We will use this information to further develop programming for future Wellness Wednesday events.

Why participate?
Whether you are a part of a business without any current wellness efforts, or already have a corporate policy and initiatives in place, each participate in the Worksite Wellness Collaborative can benefit from community support. Content of Wellness Wednesdays will be largely dependent on active participation. We want to gear our resources to what your business needs and develop a network of support for worksite wellness in Hutchinson.

How do I participate?
Simply enter your information below with your name and business and which month(s) you plan on attending. Knowing how many will be attending each month will be helpful to planning particular events and preparing materials. We will ask for RSVP’s for each month. You are not committed to attend all events, but active participation is encouraged as we will all benefit the most through sharing and networking.
