Weight Watchers at Work Success!

I have always thought that the company offers a great array of benefits that fit the health and wellness category, but I have to admit, aside from actively promoting them to our Distribution Center team, I often find myself falling short when it comes to full participation.

That all changed for me recently and I am now celebrating a great positive improvement in my health. In January, the offer was made to all Home Office and Distribution Center employees to join “Weight Watchers at Work.” Not only are the weekly meetings held here on site, but the company picks up 50% of the cost for those that meet a participation goal. I’m just 12 weeks in and I have lost over 14% of my body weight and am feeling fantastic! Now that’s what I call a special and unique benefit!

To-date, our “Weight Watchers at Work” participants have collectively lost a total of 630 pounds!! Wow! I’m so proud to be a part of this group of employees who have committed to living a healthier lifestyle.
