Workplace Wellness: Small Changes that Make a Big Difference

A little over a month ago, Baudville made West Michigan's 101 Best and Brightest Companies in Wellness List – what an honor! Baudville' s HR manager and I travelled to the award ceremony to receive our award and gather some great tips and best wellness practices from other companies. I have always considered myself a relatively healthy person so I never expected to leave feeling incredibly inspired to make a change in my lifestyle.

There was a keynote speaker at the ceremony named Drew Canole, who is the creator of Fitlife TV. He was truly inspiring and really said some things that hit home.  He asked everyone in the room to raise their hands if they were truly happy with their body and would change nothing about it.  Not a single person raised their hand.  He then asked how many people would feel comfortable enough to make a video documenting why you aren't happy with your body and what you are going to do to change it, and here is the real kicker – post the video on Facebook for the world to see. Again, everyone in the room was motionless and not a single hand was raised. The idea of doing something like that gave me anxiety and I couldn't believe this guy would propose such a thing!


Have a Spooktacular Halloween Celebration at the Office!

As you know, Halloween is just a few short days away! The suddenly never-ending candy supply at your office may have been a dead giveaway. And, although Halloween is a holiday that is typically set aside for young children, grown-ups are allowed to have a little fun too!


Customer Service Week Left Us Feeling Cool, Calm, and Collected.

I have been lucky enough to be a part of three Customer Service Week celebrations at the 'ville.  I can tell you, they are always highly anticipated and definitely don’t disappoint! This year’s Customer Service Week was no different. A spirit committee was in charge of everything from planning the theme, and activities to carrying them out. Let me tell you, they really put the "zing" in amazing!


Sitting is the New Smoking – Haven’t You Heard?

More reports are coming out daily, filling us in on just how bad sitting is for us. So far, it has been discovered that sitting can raise the risk of disability and cause obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. If you haven't heard the phrase "sitting is the new smoking," you are behind the times.
