Description

Disability provider organizations currently face problems with workforce recruitment and retention. Inadequate wages and high rates of job-related stress for direct support professionals can contribute to high turnover rates. Workplace wellness programs can increase staff health status and job satisfaction when offered as a benefit. This project engaged Ohio provider organization staff to create an inclusive workplace wellness program that responds directly to the needs of disability providers.
