As those of you know who participated in the Healthy Wage challenge this year, we recently wrapped it up with very little fanfare. We were waiting to hear the results from the Healthy Wage headquarters, and the fanfare is officially here! I’m so incredibly proud of all the folks at AHS who participated in this challenge! We didn’t have an enormous group, but those who decided to join did it with so much enthusiasm, and we have the results to prove it!
Healthy Wage Results
Healthy Wage is an entirely employee-paid weight loss challenge that we piloted for the first time this year at AHS. We had 100 employees jump on board with this challenge, losing a TOTAL of 657 pounds! That’s AWESOME!!
Here’s the breakdown of how it looked across the AHS family of hospitals and wellness centers:
The Carb Assassins Win!
Because we were competing with teams all over the country, we weren’t able to track the standing of JUST our AHS teams during the challenge itself, but the folks at Healthy Wage have a special little treat to share today. The Carb Assassins from Highland Hospital Day Shift were the winning team for the AHS cohort, losing 8.86% and earning a whopping 87 RIBBONS! over the course of the 12 week challenge. These guys ROCKED this challenge. As a special acknowledgement, Healthy Wage will be sending a $1000 surprise reward to this team! great job guys!
Earn your money back
There’s still time to earn your money back. Everyone who entered this challenge did so with their own skin in the game, and just because the 12 week challenge is over doesn’t mean you earn back your cash. Lose 10% of your total body weight and do an official weigh-in between November 4th and 17th of this year, and you’ll receive your cash back.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in this challenge. We’re not stopping there though. We’ve launched a new activity challenge with the Global Corporate Challenge, and we’ll continue to compete for the next 91 days to step our way to victory! Get excited! And get to steppin’!
