Governor McDonnell Launches Healthy Lifestyle Competition for State Employees
Date:2/8/2010

w." 

During the healthy workforce initiative, employees will compete in four-person teams and weigh in weekly, with support and encouragement from more than 700 CommonHealth state agency coordinators throughout Virginia. Final results will be reported and total weight loss posted on May 19, National Employee Health and Fitness Day.  The Governor will recognize the winners in June.

The Commonwealth has become a model employer among the states in advancing healthy lifestyles.  It was a leader in offering free wellness and preventive care benefits to employees and family members covered in state health plans. State employees last year lost a total of 24,000 pounds in a state partnership with Weight Watchers. In addition,  CommonHealth over almost a quarter century has initiated successful programs in areas such as smoking cessation, weight management, fitness and stress reduction.
