Be Well Bergen is an employee wellness program, available to all faculty and staff at Bergen Community College, to foster a workplace culture that supports any employee’s desire to implement healthy lifestyle choices. Be Well Bergen is committed to encouraging our employees’ personal and professional productivity, physical and mental health, and well-being.
Culture of Care
Be Well Bergen aims to create a “Culture of Care” across all of our campuses by bringing our employees together through social events, professional development, wellness workshops, biometric screenings, group fitness events, target groups and a comprehensive webpage and social media presence.
Some of our upcoming offerings include a walking group and a Couch to 5K in preparation for the annual Hero 5K, a weight loss support group, weekly yoga classes just for our employees, healthy recipes and cooking demos, workout buddies, guided meditation and workshops related to mental health and the return to campus. Whether you’re looking for an on-campus referral, a community connection, or taking part in our personal or professional development, Be Well Bergen is here to support you in your wellness journey. We believe that investing in our employees today will pay for itself tomorrow.
Be Well Bergen strives to foster a collaborative culture that values and respects all Bergen employees by utilizing facilities, faculty expertise and other services already in place at the College. Our total wellness doesn’t just include nutrition, fitness and stress management. Our overall well-being is enhanced when we experience enriching activities related to financial, spiritual, social and intellectual wellness as well. Please reach out with ideas for collaboration with the Be Well Bergen Program.
Be Well Bergen is a new initiative at Bergen Community College. Take the opportunity to check us out, partake in our offerings, and spread the word. As we continue to grow, we will be able to offer more and more opportunities for employee wellness. Feel free to reach out to us. We’d love to hear from you about ideas for collaboration, subject matter you’re interested in learning more about and just getting to know you.
Be Well Bergen is an employee benefit and wellness program available to all employees of Bergen Community College. Every individual at the College has something that they want to learn more about, something they’re really good at, or something to contribute when it comes to wellness. Are you looking to lose some weight or manage your type II diabetes? Worried about your financial future? Looking to develop your spirituality? To better manage your stress or make better food choices? Do you have a wellness success story that you’d like to share to inspire your co-workers? Maybe you have a solution to some of these issues that could help your colleagues to navigate the path toward wellness. Whatever your interests-or expertise-personally or professionally- we’d love to hear from you.
Be Well Bergen is located in the Pitkin building office B101A.
