WORLAND, Wyo. - The Worland Women's Business Roundtable will discuss "Wellness in the Workplace" at its Thursday, April 23, session. The discussion gets underway in the Northwest College Worland Center at noon, with networking opportunities starting at 11:45 a.m.

Sid Muller, a personal trainer and lifestyle consultant, is the featured speaker. She will explain the importance of exercise and diet in the workplace, for both employee and employer. Muller said national studies show that healthy employees are better employees with lower stress levels, lower absenteeism rates, and lowered health risks.  They feel better about themselves and possess a better attitude about work.

"It's no secret that a friendly worker with a positive attitude is more productive and can generate increased sales at the time of customer contact and far into the future," Muller said.  In her interactive presentations, she offers suggestions and demonstrations to help employers and employees achieve a higher level of wellness. 

Admission is free and includes lunch, but preregistrations must be made by Wednesday, April 22.  Click here for more information or to register, or call (307) 347-8541 or (307) 254-1105.
