Remember the work wellness challenge I posted about a couple of weeks ago?
If you’ve forgotten, it basically goes like this:
- Challenge consists of some food and exercise mini-challenge as well as an overall weight loss challenge.
- I contacted the organizers, saying I was uncomfortable with the weight loss part but would be interested in participating in the other challenges.
- They clarified that employees were welcome to participate or not participate in whatever challenges they liked.
I was tentatively optimistic.
Then there was silence. I heard no specifics regarding times, locations, or procedures for any of the other activities. So I emailed again.
Turns out? They based their “who’s interested” overall contact list on who signed up for the weight loss challenge.
