In partnership with the DC Department of Health (DC Health), the DC Chamber requests your assistance in completing a work wellness survey to support our new initiative. This survey, based on the CDC Worksite Health Scorecard is designed to help employers assess whether they have implemented evidence-based health promotion interventions or strategies in their worksites to improve the health and well-being of their employees. The survey takes about an hour to complete and will allow the DC Chamber and DC Health to get a baseline understanding of the wellness landscape for employees in Washington, D.C. With the aggregate data, we will provide feedback to DC Health advocating for more resources that can assist businesses in worksite health activities.
