Six weeks ago we started our employees on a wellness mission that included following a Weight Watchers at Work program. Our objective was to create happier, healthier employees by providing them with the resources they need to complete their health initiatives. We even added Massage Mondays to our agenda for the month of March, where employees received a ten-minute massage from a professional masseuse.
Throughout this journey, our staff has lost a total of 164.2 pounds and counting! We are so proud of each person participating, and we’re excited to see the total number of pounds lost continue to rise!
It no surprise to us that creating a healthier work environment for our employees would increase productivity. Without health related illnesses, employees tend to call in sick less, essentially making them more productive. However, that was second in importance to that fact that we love our employees and want their quality of life to be the best possible.
The Weight Watchers at Work program has taught our employees how to properly calculate healthy meals, and the Laser Image team has done its part in encouraging each participant along the way. We’ve even added healthier options to our birthday celebrations at the office that include fruit and Weight Watchers ice cream!
We’ve always been advocates of a happy and fun company culture. Adding a healthy aspect to our existing environment has only made it better. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more of our Weight Watchers at Work updates!
