Fort Valley State University joins the University of Georgia’s efforts to improve employees’ well-being and track healthy habits. USG’s HealthTrails Challenge is a six-week long competition designed for employees to compete internally through teams and externally as a whole against other colleges and universities across Georgia. All benefit-eligible employees are able to compete in the challenge that offers a fun way to log steps, water consumption and kindness. The winning institution will be treated to lunch and presented with the USG well-being traveling trophy. Led by FVSU President Paul Jones, employees kicked off the challenge by participating in a 20-minute walk on campus.
FVSU’s chief human resources officer, Carole Clerie, is impressed by the response. “We’re off to a good start. Our goal was to have 61 employees sign up to participate by last Friday (March 3). So far, we have exceeded that goal, with more than 65 registrants.”
For employees interested in joining the challenge, it’s not too late to enroll. Registration is open until April 3.
“If 30% of our employees enroll and participate daily, we are sure to win the USG Well-Being traveling trophy. I believe we can do it,” continued Clerie.
The challenge begins Monday, March 20 and ends Sunday, April 30.
