As we continue to navigate the global COVID-19 pandemic, BGRS remains dedicated to supporting our employees in maintaining a healthy lifestyle – even in a virtual work environment.
Each year, BGRS employees across the globe participate in wellness programs with varying focus and topics. The 2020 October Global Wellness Campaign, “Commit to be Fit,” began this week and will continue throughout the month, focusing on exercise, nutrition, and self-care. Employees are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities that attribute to a healthy lifestyle including exercise challenges, yoga webinars, and more.
Focused specifically on how we energize our workforce, the wellness program adds to the employee experience at BGRS, supporting health and wellness, and providing targeted tools and resources to enable employees to lead a healthy lifestyle. Our employees have access to a variety of resources to support them on their wellness journey.
Through a series of fitness and wellness activities, such as participating in virtual fitness classes, healthy eating, and setting personal goals, employees can track their progress to participate in the Commit to be Fit Challenge.
“In times of working in a virtual environment, we are still just as committed to the health and wellness of our employees” said Nancy Brickwood, Senior Vice President, Human Resources. “We take an employee centric approach to wellness, understanding that needs have changed during the pandemic. Our program supports employees holistically, with campaigns designed to accentuate different aspects of wellness throughout the year. This month’s focus is on physical wellbeing with the ‘Commit to be Fit’ campaign built on virtual activities designed to engage and energize employees.”
