Employee Wellness Program

We’re always looking for interesting ways to get employees excited about their job!

This fall we started an employee wellness program, titled “ILEE Employee Wellness”, tying in our mission of improving lives and exceeding expectations. Our goal was to get people motivated in improving their physical, mental, and financial well-being…and what better way to do that than with a little friendly competition?

Our competition was BINGO. We sent out a BINGO card at the beginning of each week for four weeks. These BINGO cards included activities such as “exercise for 30 minutes three nights this week,” “drink 32 ounces of water every day,” “place flowers on an employee’s desk,” and “create a savings plan and stick to it.” At the end of each week, BINGO cards were collected by a designated ILEE Wellness Champion at each community. Every BINGO equaled one entry into two drawings.

The first drawing was facility wide. Each facility received a fitness tracker (similar to a Fitbit) to give to a Wellness participant in their facility. The second drawing was company-wide for the grand prize of a 55-inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV.

We incorporated a Facebook group for employees to join, where they could complete BINGO squares by posting photos, sharing posts, interacting with one another, and had the opportunity to watch videos from Blue Cross Blue Shield for bonus entries.

During this event, we organized times where the local YMCAs went to facilities and offered Biometric Screenings for employees using their Blue Cross Blue Shield benefit. Participation in this event was rewarded with three bonus entries into the drawings.

On December 8, 2017 at 9:00 am, we drew for a TV live on the Facebook group. The winner was Cathy Hageman, the Dietary Manager at Derby Health & Rehabilitation. She has been an employee at Derby since 2010.

Of our 600+ employees throughout 11 communities, we had 101 participants from 10 communities, 664 total entries, and 81 members in the Facebook Group.

Thank you to all of the employees who participated in this ILEE Employee Wellness challenge, the ILEE Wellness Champions from each community who led the challenges, the local YMCAs, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Madison Osoba for implementing the Wellness program, and congratulations to Cathy Hageman for winning the grand prize!

We plan on creating more ILEE Employee Wellness challenges in 2018.
