Employee Wellness Programs & Services

REMINDER: Capped Program/Service Policy

In an effort to maximize participation at our capped programs, please note that we have instituted a “Capped Program Policy” that requires registered participants to give 72 hours notice if you are not able to attend a program or service that you registered or made an appointment for. 

We cap various programs based on various resources such as space availability, availability of facilitators/instructors, and timing of programs. Often times, when we have reached our cap for each respective program, we put other interested participants on a waiting list. Without notice, we are not able to reach out to those on our waitlist, and therefore, we end up having several "empty" seats at various programs. Additionally, if the program is catered, we end up using budget dollars on lunches/meals that weren't needed.

If you are registered for a program or have made an appointment for one of our services (15-minute chair massages for one-hour relaxation massages), and you do not show/attend or give 72 hour’s notice, you will not be eligible to register for subsequent capped programs/services during that same semester. Please note that we will make exceptions for emergencies or illness-related events. 

Capped Programs/Services Include:

  • Motivation Monday Luncheon Workshops/Seminars
  • 15-minute Chair Massages
  • 60-minute Relaxation Massages 
  • Wellness Events/Programs (i.e. Indoor Triathlon, etc.)
