HEB Establishes Wellness Program to Promote Employee Well-being
In 2019, HEB initiated the first steps into launching a company-wide Wellness Program.
The Wellness Program was created to help employees adopt and maintain healthy behaviors. The program aims to educate employees on a variety of topics including emotional, social, financial, physical, and nutritional wellbeing. These topics are presented through company-wide challenges, workshops and guest speakers.
This past summer, employees participated in a Hydration Challenge. For 21 days, participants recorded how many days per week they met their recommended daily water intake. With a high participation level, this challenge proved to be successful. A number of employees met their water intake requirements all 21 days!
“HEB is excited to embark on a new wellness program because we think this will be a significant positive impact to our staff. We want to build a culture where our staff feel supported and are healthy, happy and engaged. Ultimately, this culture of healthy and happy employees will allow us to continue to grow and prosper as a company”.
