Upcoming Benefit and Wellness Events:
The City of Frisco has a few events for employees to participate in. The events listed are in partnership with the City’s Wellness Program while other events are in relation to the City's overall benefits. Some of these events have Wellness incentives tied to them while others are for informational purposes. This event table will be updated throughout the year.
You can view our Biometric Screening Page to see other methods of completing a biometric screening for the City's Healthy Here Wellness Program. Important! Do not wait to get this action done. The Wellness Center has a set number of appointments available and there will not be enough appointments at the end of October if everyone waits until then.
