Choose to Renew U is a three-month challenge involving simple activities that include reconnecting with your purpose, self-reflection, acts of kindness, gratefulness, giving to others, positive actions and focusing on self-care. Based on the results from the Froedtert Health staff engagement survey, they found a need to implement a program that helped staff cope with stress and build resiliency skills. They have seen great success in this program, where staff members are integrating the activities from the BINGO cards into their staff meetings and as a collaboration effort amongst various departments. Employee's enjoy the focus on gratitude, mindfulness and positivity and feel that these simple activities do make a difference in their day to day tasks.
