WorkWell NYC is an exciting new initiative from the Mayor’s Office of Labor Relations and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene designed to deliver innovative wellness solutions that support NYC employees in getting healthy and staying healthy! We believe that employees are at their best when they feel good and are given the tools and resources needed to take care of their health. A healthy workforce helps build a healthy city, and we are committed to supporting the employees that power one of the largest and greatest cities in the US!
We understand that today’s busy workers can’t always find the time they need to dedicate to health and wellness activities, so WorkWell NYC is dedicated to bringing programs to the workplace, or providing online programs or those that work around employees’ schedules... WorkWell NYC’s programming includes:
Increasing access to primary care through new health plan benefits and partnerships with organizations that make it easier for employees to find care when they need it.
Prevention and Education programming that raise awareness about strategies to increase safety and health in the workplace and at home.
Offering disease management programs, including Diabetes Prevention and Management.
Workplace programs that focus on Nutrition, Fitness, Stress Management and Smoking Cessation.
Several programs are part of the launch of WorkWell NYC, including:
A partnership with Weight Watchers, a national weight loss company offering discounted membership pricing to NYC employees that is subsidized by the City and its municipal unions. Discounted pricing is available to spouses, dependents and retirees.
Flu vaccinations are now offered at worksites across city agencies during the flu season with support from the DOHMH and in collaboration with EmblemHealth.
Zocdoc is a free online service that helps you quickly find in-network, neighborhood doctors and book appointments online, often for the same day.
