October has been a busy month in our Los Angeles, California office, but between all the meetings, phone calls, and emails, we always find a little time to have fun! The Fall season is in full swing, and we spiced up our office with some seasonal decorations! We brought out the spooky spiderwebs, smiling jack-o-lanterns, and tantalizing treats to “spook” out the office!

Did you know that InMotion Hosting offers wellness resources for team members? One of the bulletin boards in our Virginia Beach office break room features wellness resources, like healthy recipes and tips to maintain a healthy lifestyle. But to help team members be even more proactive in maintaining their health and wellness, we offer two quarterly wellness initiatives: Get Physical and I Work Out.
When it comes your health and wellness, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Routine preventive care exams are an important part of a healthy lifestyle, even if you think you’re already healthy. Preventive care visits focus on catching and preventing diseases early – don’t wait to treat a disease, work to prevent it! The Get Physical wellness initiative encourages team members to get an annual physical/preventive care visit by offering them a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. To be entered in the gift card drawing, team members submit a letter from their medical provider stating they completed their annual physical.
I Work Out
Physical fitness is so much more than just losing weight. It is a vital component of your health and wellness routine. Exercising can improve your mood, boost energy levels, combat and prevent diseases, and become a social part of your day. If team members need a little help in establishing or maintaining a healthy physical fitness routine, then the I Work Out initiative can help save the day! Team members must submit proof of their exercise or physical fitness routines to get their name entered into our quarterly drawing. The more times team members workout, the more times their name is added to the drawing, increasing their chances to win a $25 Amazon gift card.
