Communicating through social media and identifying universal wellness concepts that provide a common language that can be used in the classroom, boardroom or school bus is providing bridges to potentially develop a healthier workforce in years to come.
We have been seeking connections with students of all ages to better understand the challenges they face in areas of wellness but have found more value in conversation that is focused on what healthy solutions they are already practicing and envision for their generation.
The cost of health care impacts an employer’s profit and the employee’s payroll. Our future workforce is now sitting in our schools across Mower County; it makes sense to think outside the box on how we might grow collaborations that impact wellness.
Engaging the upcoming workforce to not view healthy choices as an education standard to be achieved through a health curriculum but as an opportunity to impact what their future looks like physically, mentally and emotionally, we may be surprised at the cost effective solutions that might surface.
Mower Refreshed and many of its partners have had opportunity to see what teens can do if given the challenge, resources and support. We might just be underestimating the creative solutions that may surface as a student is riding the bus home that creates an environment in their school, making healthy choices easier and more accessible for every student and our future workforce.
