Spring Into Wellness with ORS and OHR

Spring Into Wellness with the Office of Research Services and the Office of Human Resources

Spring Into Wellness!

Multiple events to support overall well-being.

April – June 2017.


Your success at work and home is dependent on several diverse and interrelated factors; from managing your finances, strong social network and how well you take care of your physical and mental health. The Gallup study "The Five Essential Elements of Wellbeing" ( is a comprehensive global study of more than 150 countries that revealed the following five universal, interconnected elements that shape our lives: 1) physical, 2) financial, 3) social, 4) community, and 5) career wellbeing.  The study concluded that only "66 percent of people are doing well in at least one of these areas and just 7 percent are thriving in all areas."   


During the months of April through June, the Office of Research Services (ORS) and the Office of Human Resources (OHR) are partnering to offer a one-stop shop experience to support your personal and professional well-being!


The Spring into Wellness campaign is intended to support all five essential elements and will highlight numerous events, both new and existing, including:


* Take Your Child to Work Day - April 27

* Financial Fitness Month – May

* The Financial Fitness Fair - May 11

* Take a Hike Day - June 8
