Limeade Encourages Companies to Help Employees Keep Healthy New Year’s Resolutions


By: 
Date: January 18 2012

Bellevue, WA – January 18, 2012 – Henry Albrecht, CEO of Limeade, suggests employers committed to helping their employees embrace wellness “strike while the iron is hot.”
 
“Now – while your employees are revved on their new year’s resolutions for self-improvement – is the time to engage them in adopting healthy habits. This means more than giving them incentives to complete health risk assessments and biometric screenings. It also means giving them a variety of fun, social challenges to create or join. Make them easy to access and track, and you’ll be delighted with the results,” stated Henry.
 
To help employers get started, Henry shares the most popular and successful challenges of Limeade’s market-leading high-performance clients. “After all,” says Henry, “who better to imitate when it comes to creating highly productive employees than those who lead the pack?”
 
He also suggests employers shift their focus from wellness to well-being. “Well-being has proven a much better predictor of productivity and job performance. A look at the top challenges of our high-performance clients suggests they embrace a concept that goes beyond exercise and nutrition to improving emotional health, reaching one’s potential, and serving others,” Henry concluded.
 
The top challenges of 2011 were:
 
Motorless Motion
Spend 30 minutes a day working up a sweat.
 
Veg Out
Simply track at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily.
 
Catch Your Zs
Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night.
 
Lend a Helping Hand
Volunteer your time with a charitable organization that could use a helping hand.
 
Live Tobacco Free
Get started on a cessation program to quit tobacco.
 
Visit your Dentist
Get your bi-annual dental cleaning.

Clear the Clutter
Each week, clear a piece of clutter from your workspace
 
Make it a Walking Meeting
Switch one meeting a week to a walking meeting. Enjoy the fresh air while burning a few calories.
 
Hug a Customer
Do something above and beyond for our company’s customers, and share what you did with your colleagues.
