Congratulations to the winners of the 5th annual Workplace Wellness Challenge!
October was Healthy Workplace Month and workplaces from across the region celebrated by participating in the 5th annual Workplace Wellness Challenge. It was one of our biggest challenges yet - over 80 workplaces and 800 employees across the region participated and made healthy changes at work and at home.
Participants were challenged to increase their physical activity, eat more fruits and vegetables and to get plenty of sleep. There were also bonus activities, such as spending time with family and friends, drinking fewer sugary beverages and spending less time in front of screens. All of these things have been shown to increase not only productivity and happiness at work, but at home as well.
Congratulations to everyone who completed the 2017 Workplace Wellness Challenge!
