Employee Wellness Matters in Alief ISD
Alief ISD leaders understand and value the importance of healthy employees and are proactive in making wellness a priority. We provide a comprehensive wellness program that provides onsite preventive screenings and access to free and reduced healthy lifestyles programs. Alief ISD encourages physical activity both during and after the work day - our million step challenges have changed us to a culture of movement. And walking is only part of the overall push for increased movement - employees can attend free classes at the local YMCA and are offered discounted citywide gym memberships.
Alief ISD is proud to offer our employees multiple opportunities to engage in healthy living activities. We have worked hard to create a culture of wellness and we engage with community partners who share our vision. We want our employees to know that Alief cares about their health.
