What need was being addressed by this initiative?

The initial 100 day journey was implemented (for the fifth year) to improve employee’s immediate health, well-being and work performance as well as address long term behavioral change. Every year we have new employees join this initiative and each year we continue to see positive results that extend month over month. GCC has expanded and employees can access the site for 12 months, including, step entry, nutrition, sleep, weight tracker. Participants are able to track their progress and view their stats year round.

How was the initiative implemented:

Organizational reports are available that deliver real-time performance statistics and business benefits insights. 

Surveys were conducted prior to the event taking place, mid-stream and post event by GCC. An “End of Event Report” was provided.

Weekly progress reports are provided to the company to assess our progress and plan accordingly.

The GCC was an agenda line item for all Wellness Committee meetings. Discussions took place throughout the 100 day event and the committee will reconvene in November to evaluate the program, results and make recommendations for change.
