D.C. - U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director John Berry will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony this Thursday, January 14, 2010, to officially open the doors to the agency's renovated health unit. This is part of Director Berry's ongoing effort to create a model Work-Life "campus" that will showcase what the Federal Government can do to improve the wellness, morale and productivity of Federal employees.
Three federal agencies, OPM, General Services Administration and the Department of the Interior, combined forces in July 2009 to create a Work-Life campus that would include more than 6,000 feds. The OPM health unit is one of the largest units within a federal agency, providing services such as blood pressure screenings, Influenza and H1N1 vaccinations, body mass index measurement, health education and cholesterol screenings. All services are free of charge to federal employees.
The campus approach will allow the three agencies to share staff and facilities, thereby making the most efficient use of available resources. "By combining our efforts, we can improve employee wellness and morale better than we could with an agency-by-agency approach, while saving taxpayer money," said Berry.
