National Workplace Wellness Week

Today marks the start of "National Workplace Wellness Week," and we can't think of a better time to tell you about the success one of our clients is having with a team wellness challenge. They currently have 28 teams competing for prizes in three categories: most active (a pedometer walking challenge), most weight lost (by percentage), and most creative.

Creativity certainly hasn't been a problem--they've come up with some hilarious team names, they're organizing special group activities, and one team even designed a funny poster to put up at work. And when it comes to weight loss, a few teams are really shedding pounds.

Most of the challenge participants wear pedometers, and the employees love it when they see executives wearing theirs. We've said before that a group challenge enhances camaraderie, and this company's experience is proof positive. So why not think about ways your employees can work together to get healthier? If you need fresh ideas, drop us a line. We'd be glad to help.
