Q. Seeing Mayor Demings and other leadership run the 5k sets a strong example for Orange County Government employees to engage in your wellness programs. How do you recommend companies, large and small, get leadership support for employee wellness programs?
A.Yes – it truly does!  Having Mayor Demings and our senior leadership support helps tremendously in our engagement.  People view these individuals as role models and follow suit.
I would recommend any team large or small starting the conversation with their leadership and explaining the importance of being present at wellness events such as the SimplyIOA Corporate 5k.
Having their support and buy-in with all wellness endeavors creates a culture of wellness within our organization. 

Q. How does Orange County Government workplace wellness culture reinforce the healthy living message year-round?
A. We have a robust Wellness program at Orange County Government where we stress year-round messaging encouraging lifestyle modification to create long lasting results.  Currently we oversee programs that connect to our wellness incentive program. They focus on prevention and education. Programs touching on health management, mental health, events throughout the County, an onsite registered nurse to our health coaches.

Q. Can you provide one best practice for companies who would like to build their participation in the SimplyIOA Corporate 5k?
A. Communication is key! We have departments of vast roles, and it can be difficult to engage everyone; however, our HR communications team does an amazing job in engaging our members in multiple mediums.
