Wellness for APS

APS Wellness Program

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.

 

It’s Time for Annual Health Assessments

Annual health assessments have proven to be an excellent tool in our toolbox of free health resources because; 1) they focus our attention on our health, 2) they can often be a first step in identifying a potential problem, 3) early identification of risks allows early intervention to help prevent development of health conditions.By taking the assessment, you’ll gain knowledge about what you’re doing well and what might need more attention to ensure optimal health. It includes issues like nutrition, exercise, managing your stress, and life/work integration.  With the knowledge you gain from your assessment, you will have the power to make positive changes in your life.During this pandemic, we are striving not just to survive, but to thrive and be our best selves.  That goal requires that we work to achieve well-being in mind, body, and spirit. Please see the linked information about the health assessment tools available to APS employees.  Block time on your calendar to take your assessment.
