The Biggest Loser Contest: Company Uses Health and Wellness to Boost Productivity
Lindon, Utah- For Every Body, a Lindon-based candle and air freshener manufacturer, has joined a growing number of U.S. corporations who are using corporate health and wellness programs as incentives for workers to improve their health and boost employee productivity.
“We feel great,” product developer Sue Radi said. “When you feel good about yourself, it’s a lot easier to come to work and do your job.”
In May, the company wrapped up its own version of NBC’s fitness reality TV show, The Biggest Loser. Nearly 40 For Every Body employees signed up to participate in the intra-office challenge to shed the most pounds. Participants weighed in on the first and last day of the contest, but many weighed in more frequently to track their progress.
“The Biggest Loser contest was a lot of fun,”
