Who We Are

The Worksite Wellness Council of Louisville began as the worksite wellness committee of the Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Movement which met regularly to discuss how to assist employers in developing effective worksite wellness programs. In re-branding itself as the Worksite Wellness Council of Louisville, it has focused its energies on providing employers with educational activities and resources to develop and grow their wellness programs.


To foster healthy work environments by acting as the resource for worksite wellness in metro Louisville and facilitating cultures of health among employers.


To become one of the healthiest cities in the country by facilitating a culture of health through the development of sustainable worksite wellness programs, promotion of healthy lifestyles and providing support access to essential resources.

The Worksite Wellness Council of Louisville includes representatives from:

Employers with successful or new worksite wellness programs;

Employers interested in starting a worksite wellness program;

Vendors that provide services needed for worksite wellness programs, such as smoking cessation educators, wellness program consultants and physical fitness organizations.
