Get Started With Lifesaver
Organizations are shifting from a sole focus on physical health to a holistic solution for overall wellbeing, linking physical interventions with social and emotional wellbeing. Bellin’s Lifesaver Wellbeing Series is a FREE year-long program with built-in, ready-to-use resources aimed at improving health and wellbeing while positively impacting workplace engagement.
The tenets of the Lifesaver Wellbeing Series are:
- BE YOU – Accept yourself just as you are, with unique interests and talents.
- BELONG – Connect to a supportive community to share your gifts and receive encouragement.
- BE A LIFESAVER – Your example can influence – and even save – someone’s life.
The Lifesaver Wellbeing Series taps into these most basic human needs to encourage, support, and connect with each other through storytelling by featuring local Lifesavers: our neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family.
Getting started is easy:
STEP 1: Register Your Organization
STEP 2: Review the resources available through the Lifesaver Wellbeing Series and understand what engagement strategy would best fit your unique culture.
2020 Monthly Materials: Each month, content will focus on one dimension of wellbeing, with options to engage employees using helpful and easy challenge activities.
