A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):
Joliet Junior College (JJC) partners with Ceridian LifeWorks to help manage work, home health and life challenges for all full-time employees and their families. Ceridian LifeWorks is a full service Employee Assistance Program. Part-time employees can utilize the program as well by referral via Human Resources. JJC also partners with Wellness Inc. and provides on-site screening for employees, retirees and eligible dependents. One blood draw provides 36 tests that provide early detection of disease. Employees can get additional tests such as flu shots, Colocare, PSA and Thyroid Screen. The results the employee obtained during the screening process can also be used to provide the primary care physician with a screenshot of one's overall health and well-being. The main campus of the college has an onsite wellness/fitness center with personal training and fitness classes that are available to employees, students and the community. In 2015, Human Resources formed a formal Wellness Committee. The purpose of the committee is to promote awareness and provide/coordinate opportunities for personal wellness.
