We promote employee health and well-being with resources, activities and a wellness incentive. We support our employees with our four pillars of wellness: physical well-being, financial well-being, mental well-being and professional well-being.

Physical Well-Being

We offer our employees a variety of resources to promote physical health.

Wellness Incentive Program
We encourage our employees to participate in the Wellness Incentive with Vitality. Employees who earn the Wellness Incentive receive a $600 HSA deposit or premium reduction the following year.

Nurse Liaison Program
The Nurse Liaison Program connects employees and their families to a registered nurse. The Nurse Liaison Program is free and confidential. Employees can discuss nutrition, weight loss, illness, disease prevention, mental health and more. Free blood pressure, body mass index and weight screenings are also available.

Financial Well-Being

Employees can learn how to manage student loans, buy a home, reduce debt, plan for retirement and more.

Dedicated Workplace Support Consultants
Dedicated Workplace Support Consultants are licensed mental health professionals provided to exclusively support city employees to discuss stress management, communication strategies, substance abuse, grief/loss, family struggles, work-related issues or any other mental health-related concerns they might have. Sessions can be held by phone or virtually. City employees are eligible to receive 10 free sessions per incident per year.

GuidanceResources - Employee Assistance Program
All employees and their household members can use the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP provides employees and their household members with free resources, including six free, confidential counseling sessions per year, per incident.

Resources for Reducing Burnout

As passionate as we may feel about our work, we are all susceptible to burnout if we fail to exercise good self-care and relaxation techniques. Burnout is a constant feeling of physical, mental, and/or emotional exhaustion and pessimism in the workplace. In addition to the other resources listed in this section, the city's insurance providers offer services that can help you reduce burnout in your life.

Professional Well-Being

We offer training and professional development opportunities to all employees. The Learning & Development team provides a variety of professional development opportunities. Employees can complete training through Workday Learning and Denver Peak Academy

We also offer an education refund program to employees.
