Join Our Team – Kent State “On the Move”

Beginning April 4, Kent State University will participate in the On the Move Challenge, a new 12-week, national corporate competition. This competition is like no other, in that the points you earn as an individual will get your team (Kent State) one step closer to a designation as one of the most active employers in the country!

Each week, employees will have an opportunity to learn more about the benefits of physical activity, assess themselves and their progress, share successes and goals with other participants, boost peers for bonus points and — of course, move!

Kent State will compete with other employers in real time for a chance to be one of the top 100 most active workplaces in the country. We need YOU to help make this a reality!

To set skeptical minds at ease, you need not be a marathon runner to feel and experience a tremendous amount of success in this competition, as physical activity is one component of this initiative. This exciting nationwide workplace fitness competition was designed by WELCOA, the nation’s premier resource for workplace wellness, to be the first of its kind to get people moving, having fun and feeling their best. For additional information on how this challenge works, we have set up an internal Web page with a brief video and resources at www.kent.edu/hr/benefits/move-challenge

Registration is extremely easy and the best way to get started. Simply go to www.onthemovechallenge.welcoa.org and enter company code KentStateMoves as you complete your profile. This challenge is open to all full- and part-time Kent State faculty and staff on all campuses. 

As an added bonus, the Division of Human Resources will give away “Blue and Gold is On the Move” T-shirts for the first 500 faculty and staff members who sign up between March 16-30. Do not miss this opportunity to wear your blue and gold with pride and show you are on the move!   

If you have questions, contact Kim Hauge at 330-672-7505 or Sandra Cole at 330-672-7501. You also may email wellness@kent.edu

Let’s get on the move together! Go Kent State!
