Employee Wellness Program

The CalHR Statewide wellness program is administered by the Statewide Engagement Program, a established initiative aimed at comprehensively supporting the well-being of California’s workforce. This program provides strategic direction, training, and guidance to state departments, with CalHR taking a leadership role in helping them establish healthy worksites and proactive onsite wellness programs that foster employee engagement at all organizational levels.
