The Blair County Chamber of Commerce created a Workplace Wellness Committee to encourage businesses to share information on how to develop or enhance their current workplace wellness programs. To help with this effort we’ve created this discussion area as a dedicated place for businesses to ask other business about their wellness programs. This page also serves as an outlet for business to post any successes they would like to share.

Accomplishments and Activities:

The Workplace Wellness Committee has hosted seven Wake Up to Wellness events.

We are continuing the Corporate Wellness Challenge that began in 2014 by the Tyrone Regional Health Network and the Northern Blair County Recreation Center. It is now a countywide challenge with three divisions. Last year, the Corporate Wellness Challenge expanded with 38 businesses with 819 employees that lost a total of 5,893 pounds.

In 2018, we will be announcing an exciting new Steps Challenge Program that we hope will encourage even more participation.
