In conjunction with National Stress Awareness Month, the Tyson Foods Wilkesboro facility announced new support for team member well-being through a new wellness initiative. The effort encourages team member success by proactively addressing their personal well-being through education, connection to resources and onsite support.

The Wilkesboro team conducted wellness connection surveys to identify factors influencing team member well-being, mental health and interpersonal relationships. This data provided valuable insight into the focus areas to improve engagement, boost productivity, and most importantly, develop resources that enable teams to learn, engage and connect on an authentic person-to­ person level. Areas of focus included mental health, financial literacy and healthy lifestyle education, such as meal planning and fitness.

"The mission behind this initiative is to help our team members feel engaged and ensure they are equipped with the skills needed to be successful both in and outside of work," said Laken Blankenship, the Tyson Foods Wilkesboro team member spearheading the program. "I firmly believe that building a strong sense of community can support our workforce and allow our team members to flourish, and I'm beyond excited to help provide these resources to our team."
