New year, new initiatives from the Office of Human Resources


Heather Christophersen

Vice President for Human Resources Heather Christophersen shared updates last week via email regarding several new initiatives her team is working to roll out.  

The new initiatives include:

  • Personalized total rewards statements, to be distributed within the week, which will provide a clearer understanding of individual total compensation and benefits.
  • A benefit preference survey you can expect this spring, which will help human resources understand which benefits and perks are most important to colleagues.
  • A new Well-Being for Life platform that will launch on January 30.

Well-Being for Life is uniquely designed to fit individual health and wellness needs and goals, as well as to foster a culture of well-being across campus. The platform will support individual emotional, financial, physical, social, and spiritual well-being goals. Powered by Virgin Pulse, the platform makes it easier to find healthy choices, be well, and live a more balanced life. 

Well-Being for Life will:

  • Be offered to full-time, benefit-eligible faculty and staff.
  • Be available on your desktop, or as an app on your smartphone, beginning January 30.
  • Provide opportunities to earn rewards (up to $400).

More information about the Well-Being for Life platform will be delivered in an email from Virgin Pulse on January 30, including instructions for signing-up.
