1st Global Employees Participate in Annual Wellness Fair

Mar 17, 2016

1st Global, a research and consulting partner to select CPA and wealth management firms, recently hosted its company-wide wellness fair to encourage and educate employees on leading healthy lifestyles in every area of their lives.

1st Global employees had the opportunity to meet with various vendors — including Landmark Fitness, Luke’s Locker and Wholesome Grub, to name a few — to gain education and insight into how choosing consistent habits of wellness can improve one’s quality of life. Individuals also had the option of participating in biometric screenings to provide them with overall assessments of their health statuses. This annual event offers the convenience of health education and awareness to employees without even having to leave the office.

“Helping our employees learn about their own personal health and the services that are available to them is a high priority for us,” Benefits Specialist Soo Lee said. “It’s nice to see how many people take part in this event each year and how interested they are in improving and maintaining their lifestyles.”

Many 1st Global employees are very dedicated to their fitness and make healthy choices an integral part of their daily routines.

“Maintaining my health is very important to me,” Junior Compliance Analyst Elizabeth Burnett said. “My mom has struggled with heart disease and other health concerns for more than 16 years. I want to stay healthy so that I can enjoy my life longer. Plus, exercise makes me feel good immediately. You’ve got to love that!”

During the week leading up to the wellness fair, employees were able to participate in fun health trivia activities and win prizes for answering questions correctly. There were also more than 70 prizes awarded to participants who visited all of the vendors and entered a raffle after taking part in the event.

1st Global’s next employee engagement event will be a recognition outing at Top Golf in Dallas.
