Welcome USG Employees

We are in the process of implementing a system-wide wellness initiative. Our goal is to raise awareness of unhealthy lifestyles and increase opportunities for our employees to participate in a program that will assist them in leading a happier and healthier lifestyle.

Over the next coming weeks and months we will be communicating with you about tools, resources, and programs available to help you manage your wellness. Get on board to take part in one of the many events we have planned.
