Employee Wellness Program

The City of Roswell's Employee Wellness Program promotes and supports the health, safety, and well-being of our extraordinary staff. By offering in-house programs and classes, the Employee Wellness Program aims to inspire staff to make healthy lifestyle choices that will help them be the best they can be for themselves, their families, and their community.
 


Free Fitness Classes for Employees
Exercise ClassesOne of the recurring requests made through the Employee Wellness Survey in fall 2015 was that staff would like to have access to a variety of group fitness classes. Thankfully, the City of Roswell already has a very talented group of fitness instructors on our Recreation and Parks' staff, and with their help and commitment, we are able to deliver a variety of free fitness classes to our employees.
  • Circuit Training
  • Pilates
  • Cardio Fusion
  • Yoga
  • Core Training
Group fitness classes are offered on a weekly basis. They are held at varying times and locations throughout the City. For more information on when and where these group fitness classes will be held, please refer to the group fitness flyer.

Signing Up for Fitness Classes

Space will be limited and attendance will be taken. Part-time employees are encouraged to sign up for group fitness, but priority will be given to full-time employees.

Upon sign-up, you will receive either a confirmation email explaining that you have saved your position in the class, or a message explaining that you are on a waiting list for a particular class (please allow 48 hours to receive this email).


If you Are Unable to Attend Class

If you know ahead of time that you will be absent for a particular session please let me know. Those employees who incur two consecutive absences, without notifying Hydee Weis beforehand, will lose their position in the class; the next available employee will take their place.
 


Employee Wellness Center
This convenient, on-site wellness center is close to work, reducing the time it takes to address healthcare issues, as well as reducing leave hours needed. The CORE Wellness Center will be staffed by a Family Nurse Practitioner and Medical Assistant from Healthstat clinical providers. The center can provide health services to all full-time City employees, former employees on the medical plan via COBRA, and part-time employees covered on the medical insurance plan.
