Get to know Balanced You— a fresh approach to employee health and well-being designed to meet the whole-health needs of King County’s diverse workforce.
Inspired by employees, Balanced You offers a variety of health and well-being options so you can feel good, get the most out of life, and do your best work for the people of King County. We’re Investing in YOU.
King County cares about the health, well-being, and safety of our employees. It’s part of our commitment to Investing in You.
Over the past decade, the Healthy Incentives program helped make a difference in the health of many employees, their families, and the County’s bottom line. We sincerely appreciate your engagement.
We’ve heard from you that it’s time for a change. Based on your input, King County is working on a new approach to support your diverse interests and health and well-being goals in a more meaningful way. So please pardon our dust while we build a new, voluntary program that is more responsive to all employees.
