Tomlinson recently challenged its employees to step up their game with a company-wide step competition.
Tomlinson Industries recently held a competition between its employees to help team members to remember to stay active during their busy lives. From Monday, April 4 through Sunday, May 15, 52 Tomlinson employees took part in a six-week Step to IT! step challenge. Employees were given pedometers to track their steps throughout the competition.
The winning team, comprised of Matt Hric, Bob Sacha, Cheryl Derryberry and Jeff Howard, took a combined total of 3,088,551 steps and Matt Hric from Tomlinson’s Inspection department was the overall winner with 954,757 total steps. A total of 24,164,471 steps were taken by all participants from Week One to Week Six of the challenge.
The goal of Tomlinson’s Step to IT! challenge was to promote physical activity, to improve the health and well-being of employees and to help participants work their way to 10,000 steps (five miles) per day. Over the course of the challenge, 60% of participants averaged more than 10,000 daily steps, with 15% averaging more than 15,000 daily steps.
