How we work

Mission

To engage state employees, retirees, and their families in their own health and wellness journey by providing resources and a supportive environment.

Vision

To create a "culture of health" where state employees, retirees, and their families actively engage in lifestyle behaviors that improve and sustain vitality for work and life.

Goal

To make healthy choices easier for state employees, retirees, and their families. Most of our work is behind the scenes, helping to change worksite policies and working with organizational leaders and wellness coordinators to affect change at the organization level.

Long-term outcomes

  • Measurable reduction in health risks
  • Measurable increase in productivity
  • Positive impact on medical costs
  • Positive return on investment

Behavior change goals to reach long-term outcomes

Washington Wellness is working to improve the health of Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program members and their families through campaigns, initiatives, and projects focused around the five key behavior changes as put forth by the Legislature:

  • Completion of Well-being Assessments (WBA)
  • Increased physical activity
  • Improved food selection
  • Reduced tobacco use
  • Increased completion of preventive care measures

Governor Jay Inslee's Executive Order 13-06 also gives Washington Wellness direction for increasing the health of state employees.
