Welcome to Staff Wellness

The Ohio School Wellness Initiative is committed to supporting K-12 schools across the state and providing resources and guidance to promote well-being for school staff in all positions. Creating individualized, school-wide, and district-wide programming are key components to ensuring members of your team have the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to feel valued, energized, and supported in their roles.

Research has shown that healthy and supported employees have:

  • Decreased absenteeism

  • Lower turnover rates

  • Fewer work-related injuries

  • Lower health care costs

  • Improved morale

  • Increased productivity

  • Lower reports of stress

  • Increased motivation

Employee wellness is one of the 10 components of the Whole School, Whole Child, Whole Community model

promoted by the CDC. Even though it benefits the child to have healthy staff engaged in their work, employee wellness is often over-shadowed by the day-to-day responsibilities of caring for the students.
