AMR/ERM/CMS strives to promote health and wellness among our employees. Our companies are currently promoting a “Biggest Loser” contest that is voluntary for employees who wish to participate. The contest currently runs for a total of 15 weeks from January 14, 2013 until April 26, 2013. We provide a healthy lunch for the first two weeks, then once a month during February, March and April. There will be a mid-point weigh-in on March 5th and 6th to give the employees an idea of how they are doing halfway through the program. Each employee’s weight will be kept confidential and only the percentage of weight lost will be shared for award purposes.
We also encourage our employees to have an annual physical and know their “numbers”. These numbers include cholesterol levels, sugar levels, blood pressure, BMI, weight, etc. We will run this program simultaneously with the “Biggest Loser” and it will end on April 26, 2013. Any employee that would like to participate has to show written proof of their “numbers” before that time. This written proof must be from a physician and/or lab work that has been done between June 2012 and April 2013. Winners for the “Biggest Loser” and “Healthy Numbers” will be announced after the contests end on April 26, 2013.
