The New Year is often a time of reflection with an opportunity to set goals and resolutions for the year ahead, personally and professionally.

In 2016 MBD is committed to helping employees and their families lead healthier lives by offering several wellbeing initiatives.

The first initiative is an employer subsidized Fitbit device offering for employees and a +1 of their choice.  As an online community, we will use the Fitbit site to track activity with bi-monthly challenges that target and incentivize every fitness level.  What better way to work toward your goals through challenges with the benefit of 50+ teammates to celebrate with you when you reach your goals and provide support if you are struggling.

Some additional wellbeing initiatives to look forward to in 2016:

·    BCBS medical participants will have the opportunity to enroll in the Healthy Actions wellness program – that rewards you up to $300 just for taking care of your health

·    All employees will be able to enter in a friendly weight loss competition

·    All employees can invite their friends and families to participate in an online webinar that focuses on stretching & strengthening at your desk during the workday

We have so much to look forward to this year and with a healthy & fit team, we are ready to tackle all that 2016 has to offer!

Wishing you a Healthy & Happy New Year!
