The County of Tulare promotes physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices and offers a wide array of programs and activities. Employees can learn ways to develop and incorporate healthful choices into their lifestyle through education and activity, resulting in healthier employees, improved morale, reduced absenteeism, and healthcare savings.
Each month, HRD focuses on a health or mental health issue and provides a calendar of special events, webinar, podcasts, educational resources, and other opportunities through the internal e-mail system. Additional health and wellness information is also included in our monthly newsletter for employees, "The Grapevine".
Each year HRD sponsors a Health and Wellness Fair for our employees. At the Health and Wellness Fair vendors from our Employee Discount Program and representatives from the medical, dental, vision, prescription and voluntary plans provide information on wellness and health care. Flu shots, onsite Mammography Screening, PINK Tuesday, Health Risk Evaluations, Biometric Screenings and Walking Programs are also activities held throughout the year.
