On-Site Yoga

An important part of a healthy lifestyle is incorporating stress relief. A weekly instructor-led yoga class is held for beginners at the Corporate Office from 4-5pm. It is a great way to wind down from the day and strengthen the body and mind. All you need is a mat and a change of clothes, so please feel free to join us for a complimentary class anytime to see if it’s for you.

Biggest Loser- $500 Reward

Who needs more incentive than $500 to shed the pounds? Our Biggest Loser program is all about encouraging healthy weight loss with a little friendly competition among co-workers. Our 2016 Biggest Loser participants have weighed in and are already on the journey to reaching their goals. We will weigh-in in May and reward the current front runner, and then do our final weigh-ins in November announcing our 2016 Biggest Loser and handing over the $500 reward at the December annual luncheon.

Wellness Dollars – $50 Reimbursement for annual physical

An annual physical is an important step in preventative care. Routine exams can detect serious and even fatal conditions such as hypertension, high cholesterol, risk of  heart attack or diabetes. The “Goodwill Wellness Dollars” program benefits full time employees by offering a $50 reimbursement when a receipt of services is brought to the Benefits Coordinator in Human Resources. Be sure your physical qualifies for reimbursement by checking out the attachment below or talking to Linda Keas (817.332.7866 ext. 2007 or lkeas@goodwillfw.org)
