It’s no secret that Dircks promotes a healthy workplace for all employees. We encourage everyone on our team to stay active, especially during the busiest and most stressful time of the year in this industry. We host annual workplace competitions to provide a structured and fun fitness regimen. From a business standpoint, we know that happy and healthy employees achieve greater productivity. From a personal standpoint … well, we want our employees to be happy and healthy!
This year, we launched our first Move It AND Lose It competition. The first and second place winners will be announced on July 21st, and the criteria is based not on weight loss in total pounds, but on the highest percentage of weight loss. Here’s where it gets fun: each participant pays an entry fee of $10. For each week that weight stays the same, that participant is penalized $1. For each pound gained, there’s another $1 penalty. At then end, Dircks will match all money collected for the prize pool.
It’s a great incentive to get our team active, and everyone is having a lot of fun with it! Right now, Kristi Cribbs and CJ Rivera are leading the pack with percentages of 7.69 and 7.1 respectively. But a lot can change in a week or two, so stay tuned for the final results in the next issue of the Dircks Insider!
