What a great way to end April! Our team breakfast every last Wednesday of the month was a huge success. We choose a different topic each time and this month our focus was on health and wellness which is very important to me. Instead of our usual bagels and donuts we served yogurt, fruit and granola which was a surprising hit.
We recently opened the FineAwards.com Fitness Center featuring a treadmill, bike, weights and bands. We are adding more weights, a pull up station and heavy bag soon. To encourage employees to use it more often we launched a new incentive program with amazing prizes to those that put forth a consistent effort to workout. We all signed a pledge for a better me and instituted a drink more water chart. The team welcomed personal trainers, Jimmy and Liz, to discuss and answer question about staying in shape before leading us in a 15 minute warm up and stretch.
Then our management team presented the staff with a basketball hoop to enjoy during the day whether on break, lunch or any time you need a moment to gather your thoughts and relax. We crowned our first free throw champions and they were recognized with massages in the office the next day along with 4 other award winners. We are just scratching the surface with more big plans to come including a healthy eating plan, crock pot recipes, free protein supplement station and exercise video schedule throughout the day in the break room.
I am so proud of our team and the effort we put every day to recognize others. Our goal is to grow personally and professionally during our time together.
