The HPU Employee Wellness Program began in 2013 as a participation, points-based program to help employees improve their health and wellness journey. By participating in various wellness activities, employees who elect to take High Point University’s medical plan can potentially earn a $600 premium reduction for the 2020-2021 benefits plan year.
Mission: Employee wellness provides individualized, accessible and comprehensive wellness education and resources which support and empower employee to reduce health risks and embrace a higher quality of life and well-being.
Vision: The vision of the Employee Wellness Program is to establish a culture which fosters the holistic well-being of faculty and staff who lead healthy, extraordinary lives, are caring people, and model wellness to inspire our campus and community.
It is with great excitement that the Employee Wellness Program is here to serve the faculty and staff at High Point University. We are embarking on a great journey toward wellness. As we travel, we will share joys and struggles, the role of the Employee Wellness department is to celebrate the joys and help you navigate through the struggles. I encourage you to use the Employee Wellness Program as a partner in your ongoing wellness initiatives or a starting point to begin. Please let me know how I may be of service to you as we continue to grow as a caring body of educators and staff to deliver an extraordinary education for our students. I look forward to working with you.
