Employee Benefits & Wellness

Employee Benefits at the City of Tuscaloosa has a new focus!

Our new focus is to support and enhance the health and wellness of City employees and their families.  We understand that attainment of our goal will not be immediate but will be a journey over time.   We believe that wellness begins with the individual but that a community- based culture of health is essential to support the individual in his or her journey to healthy living.  Therefore, we hope to extend our initiatives to include the community and we hope to partner with other employer groups in order to combine our resources and thereby enhance the success of all groups.

City of Tuscaloosa Benefits and Wellness Advisory Committee

A Benefits and Wellness Advisory Committee has been assembled with members from all City departments.  The committee’s mandate is to provide input in the design of wellness programs for employees.  More importantly, members will support employee involvement in the City’s transition to a culture of health.
