GMM and Open Hand Continue to Build Culture of Health and Wellness
Get Fit Challenge Has GMM and Open Hand
Walking The Talk
When you are in the business of health and wellness as we are here , you strive to educate and motivate the community to adopt healthy behaviors. Unfortunately, you sometimes become so focused on helping others that you run the risk of losing sight of your own organizational well-being.
Here at Open Hand and Good Measure Meals™, we’re attempting to make sure that does not happen! In fact, we’re on a mission to implement programs that will ensure that all of our employees literally “walk the talk.”
This month, we officially launch the Open Hand Get Fit Challenge. The Challenge is an 8-week walking program that involves every department within GMM and Open Hand, and encourages participation through incentives that will reward those who attain step goals with weekly prizes. Each employee was issued a pedometer, courtesy of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia, and challenged to reach or exceed their personal goals.
While the aim of the Challenge is to increase physical activity around campus, we will also use it as an opportunity to promote wellness programing and educate our staff on all aspects of health and wellness. After all, studies have shown that not only do programs like this help to improve the overall health of our workforce, but they can be linked to improved employee morale and increased productivity — the very reasons our Corporate Wellness programs designed for the corporate and faith communities have been so successful!
If your company or organization would be interested in implementing a health-promoting initiative or if you’re simply looking for wellness programming to supplement a program you already have in place, please contact Jess Parsons, Vice President of Good Measure Meals™, at 404/419-1129 or by email.
We’re here to serve our community and would love to chat with you about our services which feature an amazing team of registered dietitians and wellness professionals who can support your team in their efforts to invest in their own health and well-being!
