What is inBalance? inBalance is the City of Springfield Employee Wellness Program that provides a wide variety of programs and services to positively influence overall well-being. inBalance was created as a direct response to feedback provided in an employee survey, and is a program that readily adapts to the changing needs and desires of City employees. inBalance serves City employees and their families in such a way that makes the City of Springfield a great place to work.
The name inBalance was chosen to remind employees that to achieve balance in life is one of the most beneficial aspects of overall health. A balanced life looks and feels different for everyone. Wellness is much more than merely physical health, exercise, or nutrition. It is the full integration of various dimensions of wellness including physical bodies, minds, work and family environments, and much more. The inBalance Program will strive to offer opportunities that provide help in these areas. The inBalance City of Springfield Employee Wellness program wants to put that power within the hands of each and every employee through education and awareness, while providing the skills and opportunities necessary to accomplish a person's wellness goals.
