Up high, down low – it's never too late to show your appreciation with a Hen High Five. Why a high five? The high five, which is often used as a gesture of greeting and celebration, is an instantaneous way of telling a person that they are important and deserve to be recognized, which can strengthen connections between colleagues, improve workplace engagement and boost wellbeing for both the giver and recipient. So, what are you waiting for?
Take five to share your appreciation of a colleague!
Wellbeing goes beyond health: purpose, support, connection, safety, growth and joy. We want our employees to thrive holistically, function optimally and actualize potential in both personal and professional lives.
In 2023 Employee Health and Wellbeing programs were integrated into Human Resources and Campus Recreation portfolios.
We invite you to learn more about fitness classes and recreational opportunities by visiting Campus Recreation.
