When Workplace Wellness Gets the Five-Year Itch…

We just started our fifth-annual spring fitness challenge and, I have to admit, keeping it exciting has been a challenge itself! We knew our seasoned employees would be looking for a new twist and The Bod Squad—our team that coordinates all things wellness—was feeling a little ho-hum about the existing program, too. We put our heads together, and, along with some healthy encouragement from Brad, our CEO, we proposed some changes that we hoped would get everyone energized like we were in 2010.

So if you are in the same boat as I am, hopefully my quick list will be somewhat helpful. Whether you work with teachers, have kids in school, or just know a few teachers-  be sure to let them know they are appreciated.
