AT DOMINION DIAGNOSTICS LLC, an all-volunteer Achieve team develops an offering of wellness programs from clinical health screenings to Apple Day, when each of the 300 employees are given an apple from a local orchard.

“Wellness is much more than losing weight,” said Kathy Cahill, human resources generalist. “We try to think out of the box to help people manage stress, eat well and feel better.”

The support is crucial to employee Karen Casey.

“I’ve always attended the events,” she said. “But now, they help me along my journey with cancer and chemo. One of my favorite wellness events is our Seed Planting Day. We are provided veggie seeds, planters and soil to grow our own healthy veggies.”

She and the other employees participate in yoga, hydration stations and smoothie days with local honey. Financial wellness is another focus.

Cahill said it’s important for HR departments to look for the health benefits included in their company plans and use them.
