Virtual Self-guided Events
The Cox Southwest region Wellbeing committee sponsored, promoted, and participated in the Virtual American Heart Walk. Employees who participated on their own sent in their walk/run tracker for a chance to win company sponsored prizes. When weather permits, we will be continuing this type of activity to foster healthy competition and promote physical wellbeing.
Resources for work-from-home success
Employees were provided guidance on how to set up their workstation for success, maintain a workday routine, and fight mental fatigue that can come from constant screen time.
On-Demand fitness and mental health resources
Starting in April, Cox launched a partnership with both the Openfit and Headspace apps to provide employees access to virtual fitness and mental health programs. This granted 24/7 access to a variety of at home exercise programming and guided meditations for employees.
Virtual Live Events
We’re connecting our employees with industry professionals and offering the chance for them to participate in programs that promote overall wellbeing. So far this year, we have done physical and mental wellbeing workshops and are continuing to plan live and on-demand virtual events into the fall.
On a smaller scale, departments are scheduling healthy happy hours and taking time to check in with their peers on a frequent basis. This difficult time we are all facing can be made a little bit easier through connection and meaningful relationships with our peers.
This new normal has provided us with even more opportunities to connect and engage our people in meaningful programs and resources when they need it most.
