Maintaining a healthy work/home balance the past 18 months has been a challenge for everyone. To help its employees bridge the gap between the workplace and home, the City of Philadelphia’s Division of Aviation Human Resources created PHL WELL, a program that educates, informs, and engages employees on how to manage their physical, mental, and financial wellbeing. “The PHL WELL program is stacked with articles, videos, infographics, brown bag workshops, challenges, and reminders, to provide all airport staff with tools and encouragement not only so they can succeed, but so they can help their loved ones be well, too,” said Stacey Moragne, Executive Assistant (HR).
The first PHL WELL activity is the “Hydration Station”, which challenges Division of Aviation staff to increase their daily water consumption and minimize the intake of sugary fluids from their diets. Participants registered through PHL University, the airport’s online training platform, and were asked to record videos drinking a minimum of eight ounces of water. Employees receive one point for each ounce of water they drink (two extra points for using PHL water bottles in their videos, or four if using the water bottles and wearing a PHL t-shirt). The program will have weekly winners for the most water consumed, and most points earned, as well as an overall winner for the highest total points, to be announced on September 27.
“This friendly competition is a great way to engage and encourage our employees to adopt healthy habits,” said Delicsha Wilds, Deputy Director of Aviation for HR. “We hope this program will inspire our colleagues and passengers."
We’re looking forward to sharing PHL WELL tips with PHL’s guests and making the entire airport community healthier.
