This week we were excited to learn we made the finalist list for Ragan’s 2013 Employee Internal Communications Awards. Peak was one of five finalist companies selected under the “Best Health/Fitness Program” category for our innovative health and fitness month that took place in October 2013.
For 31 days, our dedicated team supported each other to eat healthy food and drive our fitness routines above and beyond the status quo. Points were awarded to each staff-member who went the extra mile and increased their daily workout. Management at Peak supported staff by hosting yummy fruit-filled breakfasts and a series of healthy pot-luck lunches. In addition to our workplace gym memberships, they also kindly supplied Peakers with sports-bags to help the team carry exercise equipment to and from work. There was an energetic buzz about the office throughout the month.
“For fitness, I’ve always biked during Vancouver’s warm weather months. For the six years I’ve been doing this, I always stop in mid-September,” says Ross Sullivan, Partner at Peak Communicators. “The Fitness Challenge made me rethink that. This year is the first time I biked throughout October and beyond, and felt the health benefits as a consequence.”
Each year, Ragan awards companies throughout North America for their innovative initiatives and achievements. Ragan’s 2013 Employee Internal Communications Award is designed to recognize companies that push boundaries and try new tactics that achieve great results. Ragan selected this year’s finalists based on their“irreverence, off-beat humor, risk-taking and creativity in the execution of everything they did.”
The winners of Ragan’s 2013 Employee Internal Communications Awards will be announced in the coming weeks in a Special Edition of Ragan.com.
