If you follow our daily blog, you have seen several entries touting the progress of the Wellness Program we launched on April 1, 2016 and our partnership with Walkingspree.
All 36 of our employees participated in the program and our collective results are quite impressive!
Here are some highlights:
- We took over 39 MILLION steps from April 1st to December 31st. Let’s take a moment to put this into perspective.
- That is more than 19,000 miles
- That is the equivalent of walking around the moon twice
- We collectively burned 1.9 million calories
- We collectively averaged 7,400 steps per day
- 18% of our participating employees lost weight
We are so pleased with our results, which do not even represent a full year of program participation. Starting your own wellness program is not as daunting as it would seem. If you are intrigued and are thinking doing something similar for your firm would benefit your employees, please let me know. I am happy share our program strategy, best practices and key learnings.
We are already off to a fast start in 2017 and we will keep walking!
