2017 is off to a great start for Clickstop’s Wellness Program.
With January finished, and all of us Clickstoppers dreaming about warmer weather, Thrive has been busy kicking off 2017 with new healthy initiatives and exciting new events to bring wellness to our Clickstop community. To kick off the year, Thrive started their Misplaced Mass challenge. Any Clickstop employee was eligible to sign up. With a small $5.00 entry fee, participants will compete against each other to see who can misplace the most mass;that is, lose the highest weight percentage. The competition started last week and will continue through the end of April. There was a starting weigh in with our rep, Ashton, from PCDM. Ashton will be back for our midpoint and final weigh ins. The winner will receive the cash!
We had about 21 people sign up. Week one of the competition is finished and there are a lot of motivated people eating healthier and working out multiple times a week. Nothing like a little bit of competition to kick us into gear.
At the end of January, we also celebrated our accomplishments through our Duck Wellness program. In 2015 and 2016, employees could do activities to earn ducks. At the end of the year, they could turn their ducks in for prizes. Employees earned everything from fruit infuser water bottles, HyVee gift cards, and even zipline packages. Though the program was successful, the wellness committee decided to move forward with something new. So to help celebrate, Clickstop had a Ducky Retirement Party, complete with a potluck, dress up day, and a few games.
Other events planned for 2017 include our annual Winter Olympics, a Clickstop 5K, and we are currently forming a team to ride in the Tour de Cure.
