Monthly Wellness for County Employees
Monthly Well-being Education - Financil Well -Being
National employee surveys have found that almost half of employees worry about their finances during the work day— reducing their productivity and increasing stress. While personal finances and worry may not be an area you want to intervene in as an employer, you can create a culture of health with tools and resources for employees to use to support their financial well-being.
Employers can support a healthy financial well-being for employees with a variety of options through NDPERS:
-Employees can learn how to make the most out of their NDPERS benefits or plan for retirement: Webinar recordings are available on the NDPERS website
-The NDPERS 457 Deferred Compensation retirement plan company offers ready to use flyers and webinars.
-The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) includes free and confidential counseling.
Once again LaMoure County is offering free heart health wellness screenings for employees! This is part of the LaMoure County Wellness Plan and our annual event. The LaMoure County Health Department (LCHD) will conduct the screening. Screening includes: Blood Pressure, Lipid Screening (LDL, HDL, triglycerides, cholesterol), Blood Sugar, Height, Weight and BMI. The test suggests fasting for eight hours (sips of water and coffee and medications are acceptable) as it is conducted by doing a finger prick for blood. After the screening, the LCHD Nurse will review your numbers with you and offer education. As always, this information is to help you and all health information is yours and will not be shared.
