Spring into Action

Spring into Action: Starting the Year With Wellness

Krystal Paisley

April 3, 2018

It’s officially spring! While the weather would seem to disagree that the seasons have changed in some of our office locations, we're heading into the new season by getting focused on wellness.


To kick off the ms Wellness Program, ms employees and spouses are participating in the “Spring into Action” Fitbit challenge. Armed with Fitbits, participants are stepping up to the challenge (pun intended) from April 2 – April 29.


New to the 2018 wellness program is this four-week Fitbit challenge. “Spring into Action” challenges ms wellness program participants to get active with a 36 million companywide step goal. Participants are encouraged by prizes and motivated by accountability from teammates across all office locations.


An added bonus? The charitable donation on the line! If wellness participants collectively meet the 36 million steps by the end of the four-week challenge, a $5,000 donation will be made to a local charity. ms firmly believes in complete wellness for our employees, their families, and our local communities.


One of the biggest benefits of the ms Wellness Program is its continued evolution. Each year, the program is evaluated based on participant feedback, participation, and areas for improvement.


The ms Wellness Program doesn’t just look at physical wellness either. Wellness activities and education are focused on well-rounded health and wellness, including stress, diet, time management, better sleep, financial health, and more.


Other ms Wellness Program highlights:


  • Company subsidized Fitbits for employees and spouses, plus discounts for family members
  • Individual wellness coaching
  • Group weight loss program
  • Educational, interactive workshops
  • Community activities
  • Two, four-week Fitbit challenges
  • Incentives for completing preventative testing


The ms Wellness Program is just one of the many benefits of working at ms. Ready to join us? Visit our careers page for current job openings.
