Wellness Programs

 

Weight Watchers at Work

Congratulations on making a commitment to your health and well-being!  The college wants to help you succeed, so you can use Employee Assistance Program (EAP) funds to be reimbursed for your participation in Weight Watchers at Work.

There are some policies you should know about to get the most out of the program:

  • To be reimbursed under EAP, you must attend at least nine of the 12 Weight Watchers meetings offered on campus in a single session.  If you can't make it to a meeting on your usual campus, you can attend a meeting on another campus.
  • Your attendance each week must be recorded in your “Membership Book” which must be stamped by the Weight Watcher’s Leader when you attend the meeting on campus.
  •  When you’re ready to apply for reimbursement, you’ll need:
    • An EAP form signed by your supervisor.
    • Proof of attendance at 3 sessions per month in your Weight Watchers membership book. You can block out the part that records your weight; we just need proof of attendance.
    • Proof of payment. You have three options here:
      • You can provide a “canceled check (front and back) and a copy of the attached “Weight Watchers At Work Member Log” with Payment Type circled and signed by your Weight Watchers Leader, OR
      • A credit card statement indicating payment made to Weight Watchers and a copy of the “Weight Watchers At Work Member Log” with Payment Type circled and signed by your Weight Watchers Leader, OR
      • If you pay your weekly fee by cash, a copy of the “Weight Watchers At Work Member Log” with Payment Type circled and signed by your Weight Watchers Leader.
    • Send all of the documents to India Hunter in the Human Resources and Strategic Talent Management office.

 Good Luck with the Program. Let’s get healthy and reach our goal weight together.

Balancing the demands of work and personal life can be challenging. That’s why the College provides the Faculty/Staff Assistance Program (FSAP), a confidential service. Help is provided through ComPsychnew window, which provides comprehensive services to support you in meeting your personal, family, and work challenges.

Provided as a free benefit, the FSAP is staffed by experienced, Masters-level professionals. You can visit their website for further information, but here is a quick summary of the kinds of things FSAP can help with:

  • Stress
  • Feelings of sadness or anxiety
  • Marital concerns
  • Family pressures (children, teens, older relatives, etc.)
  • Relationship issues
  • Financial difficulties
  • Bereavement
  • Alcohol and/or drug problems

All information regarding your participation in the program is confidential except as governed by state and federal laws. Some laws require reporting in circumstances such as: if your condition makes you a threat to yourself or others; or there is suspected child, elder, or spousal abuse.

 To use the free and confidential service, simply call ComPsych at any time.   A team of professionals is available to answer your call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The number to call is 1-844-236-2668. If you are hearing impaired, the number is 1-800-697-0353.

I hear the College allows time for wellness activities.  How does that work?

MC allows up to 1 1/2 hours a week for wellness activities.

Staff are encouraged to participate in wellness activities a minimum of three days a week.  A maximum of 1-1/2 hours of duty time per week can be approved for these activities. You must complete a Staff Request for Wellness Activities Form that must be approved by your supervisor in order to utilize “release time” for wellness activities.

Staff who wish to request time to participate in wellness activities must match non-duty time with duty time. No more than one-half of the total wellness time may be released time; employees may use as much of their non-duty time as practical. Time for wellness activities must not exceed one hour at a time including time needed to get to and from the activity and time to change clothes.

Can I hire one of the wellness staff as my own personal trainer?

Yes, as long as you meet certain conditions.

Yes, you can hire one of the wellness staff as your own personal trainer outside the college campus. You will be responsible for the terms and payment of this individual and you enter into this agreement at your own risk. Please note, campus facilities may not be used for your training.
