A Healthy Workplace Starts with YOU!
At the Y, we believe staff are our greatest asset and we want you to thrive. We offer:
Health promotion activities
We want to make the healthy choice the easy choice for you, and for you to walk away from the Y healthier than when you came. We offer health promotion activities such as wellness coaching, healthy lifestyle programs, medical screenings and on-site fitness classes.
Our environments encourage wellness through policies and organizational-wide priorities, such as asking that 60-minute meetings include a wellness break to get you up and moving.
Stress Less September
Workplace Stress is Serious.
More than one-third of American workers experience chronic stress. Women, LGBTQ+ communities and adults with disabilities report higher average stress levels than their counterparts, and 2015 data reveals that younger generations experience more stress on average than their mature peers (American Psychological Association).
Between September 1 and 30 of 2019, we'll be looking at what causes stress and identify clear and actionable ways to manage it. We won't deny that stress exists and we want to give you the tools and resources needed to be as relaxed, productive and happy as possible.

In Their Words
Staff from across the Y share their wellness stories.
I appreciate that the Y promotes wellness challenges that help me and other Y staff step back and take a look at how we work. The Stress Less Challenge helped me hang with co-workers in out of the box ways and prompted me to leave work at work so I can enjoy life outside of work too.
As Chief Operating Officer, I encourage staff to be intentional with their time, their words and actions; with intention we develop self-awareness and that helps us show up at our best. I also encourage supervisors to appreciate how their staff operate best and ask them to accommodate when possible.
Fit Tip Tuesday helps me pause during the week and ultimately assists me in making healthy choices. I'm also encouraged to take time and space to focus on my mental and physical health throughout the day.
Healthy Staff Means Healthy Kids
Our vision is that the healthiest kids in America live here in the Bay Area and we can't get there without a happy and healthy Y staff.
