Healthy Opportunities Wellness Program

Worksite wellness programs are widely regarded as an organizational strategy that can be used to address employee health and well-being with the opportunity to positively impact morale, safety, productivity, recruitment, retention and health care costs.  These programs benefit both the employee and employer.

The State of Iowa invites you to participate in the Healthy Opportunities Wellness Program. The program seeks to promote and support health awareness, individual responsibility for a healthy lifestyle, decreased risk of disease and enhanced quality of life.

The Healthy Opportunities program is administered by the Department of Administrative Services – Human Resources Enterprise.  The annual campaign  is held in late summer/early fall.  Employees eligible to participate are Executive Branch Non-Contract staff, new hires  and Executive Branch Non-Contract SLIP Retirees.
