Get Pumped For Employee Health And Fitness Month!
In our industry, the month of May is famous for being National Moving Month, but it also shares another designation – Global Employee Health and Fitness Month. This event is a month long initiative created by the National Association for Health and Fitness and ACTIVE Life.
If you go to their website, www.healthandfitnessmonth.com, you can find out exactly how it works. Your employer would create an account and then employees can accumulate points on how active they are. The goal is to create an all-around healthier lifestyle for everyone.
Forbes.com has a great write-up about the event and why it’s important, which you can view here.
At Arpin, we focus on health and fitness year round with wellness initiatives and an on-site gym available to all employees. While this is targeted as a May event, try to have that same mindset year round!
If your company isn’t currently involved, contact your HR department to get in on the action for next year.
