The San Francisco Health Service System approaches well-being through three components within the Annual Plan.
- Raise Awareness focuses on department-wide and targeted communications to promote well-being resources and activities
- Offer Programs provides opportunities to engage employees in well-being activities and events with the opportunity to tailor well-being and make it more accessible for employees.
- Create a Culture supports leadership with tools to help them advocate to align well-being with the departments core values and priorities
Departments must prioritize well-being in their overall strategy, in order to have a successful Annual Plan.
Annual Plan Components:
Establish an Annual Plan:
Complete Overview Training - Gather as a group (Department Lead/Champions) to complete the Annual Overview Training provided by SFHSS.
Develop Tailored Strategy - Establish a timeline and identify objectives for well-being efforts coordinated by Key Player(s).
Implement and Engage - Bring well-being to the workplace with SFHSS sponsored activities and Department-Led programs.
Check-In and Evaluate- Meet with SFHSS Well-Being Coordinator quarterly to update and evaluate the progress of your Annual Plan.
I believe in prioritizing well-being for employees because employees are the City’s greatest asset.
