Trace Health and Wellness Challenge Winners
This year, Trace and our employees supported the North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) week from May 1st – 7th by participating in the second annual Trace Health and Wellness Challenge. Divisions from across the company teamed up to participate in and track both mental and physical wellness activities. By focusing on our mental and physical wellness, it helps how we think, feel, and connect with ourselves and each other.
Each division was given access to a custom Trace made app called the Health and Wellness Tracker, where they were able to log their activity and share fun photos of the events as they were engaging in them. This friendly competition encourages teamwork and wellness, and the winners receive a year’s worth of bragging rights AND a donation to a charitable organization of the winners’ choosing.
This year, Employees participated in over 694 logged hours of activity, ranging from sports and outside time to meditation and reading. The division who took the lead was Trace’s Lethbridge office. The employee with the most recorded hours was Alisa Evenson (nee Johnson) with 39.5 hours of activities, Erin MacCormick (30.5), and Steve Svrcek (25.5).
