Great River Energy has been designated as one of the top 10 most active companies following this year’s national “On the Move” company challenge. Developed by the Wellness Council of America, On the Move partners with organizations around the country to take a stand for more movement and improved cultures of wellbeing for employees.
Eighty-four companies representing more than 85,000 employees participated in the 12-week online challenge spanning April, May and June. The challenge engaged employees with educational resources, video coaching, social support and, of course, movement. Employees tracked their activity types, duration and intensity to work toward 100 “Move” points each day.
“Traditional wellness program challenges do not zero in on culture change or connect employees with the ‘whys’ of being active that matter to them, so it was important Great River Energy partnered with an effort that did,” said Jason Vollbrecht, Great River Energy’s benefits leader. “We are excited to have been a part of changing the conversation around physical activity to help employees live a thriving life of meaning and purpose.”
