Pinellas County offers a variety of classes in order to improve wellness and earn rewards through the Wellness Incentive Program. The classes are open to all employees.
Wellness incentives will be awarded for one series of classes in 2018. You may participate in any Wellness Learning or Weight Watchers classes, but you will receive the 25,000 points/$100 cash incentive reward for only one series. This limitation applies to the Wellness Learning Series and Weight Watchers classes, but not to the Wellness Coaching online classes.
- Topics for 2018 are The Stress-Proof Brain and Back to Basics 2.0.
- Each series includes four weekly one-hour classes.
- You must attend all four classes in the series to be eligible for the wellness incentive of 25,000 reward points or $100 cash.
- If you miss a class, you can make it up by attending the same class (e.g. week 2) at another location.
- You may participate in several series; however, the reward is available for completion of one series only.
The Stress-Proof Brain series has ended but you can access the videos and links to stress-reduction resources on our Wellness Resources page.
Series #2 - Back to Basics 2.0 begins on September 11.
