SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGE LAUNCHES JULY 6 – REGISTER TODAY!; HR Faculty Staff News; June 12, 2020
Your Employee Wellness Team invites you to join our second challenge with Wellable, our newest wellness partner. Wellable provides an online challenge platform and device/app integration formerly found in our partnership with the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA). Many Kent State employees have already started using Wellable. Don't miss out on our next challenge, which will focus on physical and environmental Sustainability.
The simple goal of sustainability is to create and maintain an environment where humans and nature can exist in productive harmony. Although sustainability must address complex global challenges, the protection of the environment can also be influenced on a smaller scale. Becoming aware of resource consumption and reducing unnecessary waste is a step in the right direction. There are countless ways to practice environmental awareness in our daily lives, and small actions can have a big impact.
This challenge provides participants with an opportunity to focus on their physical well-being by engaging in regular movement, as well as the well-being of the planet by learning how to easily adopt sustainable practices. Exercising and practicing sustainable habits will allow participants to rack up Wellable points and enjoy some friendly competition with fellow Flashes.
This four-week challenge will run from July 6 through August 2. It is open to ALL full- and part-time faculty and staff. Those who actively participate will be eligible for weekly prize drawings to keep you motivated and support your wellness goals. Completing this challenge is also worth 20 Tier 2 points for those participating in the wellness rewards program. To qualify for Tier 2 points, employees must maintain at least 65 percent participation over the 4 weeks.
