Challenge: John Knox Village of Central Florida wanted to provide recognition and special programs to show staff they're appreciated and valued. It planned to implement a six-week wellness incentive program to promote the idea that a healthy staff is happy and productive. Tools were needed to help make the program successful.
Solution: Wellness program participants were separated into teams and asked to keep track of their weight, height, body mass index, and blood pressure. They also underwent sit-up, push-up, flexibility, and balance tests. Each participant received a Positive Promotions "I Eat Right, Exercise & Have Fun" Silicone Wristband and a "40 Ways to 'Fit In' Fitness Every Day" Pocket Pal. Teams earned points for exercise as well as improvements in their wellness assessments.
Result: Participants proudly wore their Silicone Wristbands and put their Pocket Pals to use, said Wendy Highland, resident services coordinator. "Overall we have found that staff are excited about participating and those who signed up are making efforts to include more exercise and healthier eating choices into their lives," she said. "No matter what team places first, we are all winners."
