Employee Wellness Program
As part of the BCPS culture of deliberate excellence, we need to create a culture of deliberate wellness. Wellness is personal. It’s an individual journey toward balance, and a healthy lifestyle.

Like walking, we need to take it one step at a time, keeping the pathway in front of us. This involves focusing on the positive and possible, and working together. It is not about judgment but about support. The Employee Wellness Program works to provide a variety of programs and offerings that address the various components of wellness: emotional, intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual.

Additionally, we work to:

  • Collaborate with others to cultivate a healthy, safe, and supportive environment
  • Assist individuals and sites in meeting their diverse wellness needs
  • Assist in the implementation of federal, state, and local health-related guidelines, objectives, and regulations
