So, The Fax Guys are always looking for ways to incorporate wellness into our daily routines at the office. We pride ourselves on our quarterly wellness activities sponsored by our owners, who know what a healthy team of employees means for the bottom line. It is a no brainer really: healthy staff = a more productive workplace with fewer absences and decreased medical costs for all. Don’t just take my word for it, watch this awesome video and maybe you will be motivated to move too!
Our most recent initiative is to monitor activity with the help of a cool gadget called FitBit. This handy (and tiny) wireless activity tracker does all the work for us. It counts our steps, gives us a daily total on miles traveled, calories burned and more. It syncs up with our iPhones and computers to keep us motivated throughout the day. Pretty slick! We are in the infancy of this most recent wellness initiative with the FitBits, but they have already proved to be a great motivator to MOVE! We all need that, don’t we?
In conjunction with the FitBit, we are participating in a wellness community called VaporWire. Through VaporWire, we are able to set up company-wide challenges (for prizes!!) and encourage one another to keep moving. VaporWire is a Minnesota company and The Fax Guys are excited to be one of their newest teams!!
What does your company do to encourage healthy lifestyles and increase activity levels? What have you tried? We’ll keep you posted as we get going with these great tools. Stay tuned!
