The APS Wellness program was established in 1986 by Arlington Employee Assistance Program for APS employees. The mission of Arlington EAP is to provide free, confidential support to; 1) assist employees with preventing or resolving personal, family and workplace concerns that may affect emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being or job performance; 2) help the organizations create/sustain a culture of health to enhance quality of life as well as promote optimal engagement, personal well-being and professional excellence. The Wellness program helps achieve the goals that support our mission. The EAP sponsors several successful employee wellness initiatives including Mindfulness, Wellness Challenges and Bowling Tournaments.
