Hey Sarah! As of last Fall, we put together our first 'Wellness Committee' (fka Employee Engagement Committee) to help tackle those exact issues and then some. While we're still figuring out the exact scope of what the group can accomplish and how we go about the work, our goal is to improve overall employee wellbeing from a holistic perspective.
We are currently 10 members strong (out of ~75 total employees) and are made up from positions and departments all across our org chart. We aim to meet once a month (1hr), with some members meeting more often depending on the current focus. For example, my co-chair and I may meet separately to plan for upcoming events, set agendas for the group, discuss roll-out strategy for our recent employee survey feedback, etc.
I like to think that the committee has already helped to improve employee relations and communication but, as a member, I may be bias:) We certainly still have a lot of opportunity for more wellness events that tackle lack of engagement, and I'm optimistic that this committee will continue to have a positive impact!
I could talk about this kinda stuff for hours, so please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. Cheers!Jen DupreeBehavior, Training, & Organizational DevelopmentKitsap Humane Society
