WELLNESS POLICY GUIDANCE

The process of writing or revising a wellness policy can seem daunting.  But when taken step-by-step, with guidance, it is a manageable and very worthwhile endeavor.  Utilize the resources available and actively recruit people to help with the communication and review of the policy implementation.  

Remember, a strong policy, that meets all required federal and state regulations and laws, is easier to communicate and enforce than a vague and weak policy.  RIHSC is always available for whatever assistance you need!
