Congratulations to Angelica Jessup of Oakland University for winning Wellness Works’ Personal Workplace Wellness Challenge. As the winner, Jessup will receive a Fitbit Versa and be featured on the Wellness Works website.
To win the Challenge, Jessup had to answer the question “How do you encourage healthy behavior in the workplace?” Jessup said that she has an accountability partner in her office. She and her partner hold each other accountable by asking each other about workout plans and occasionally exercising together. She also keeps gym clothes in her office for workouts or lunchtime walks throughout the week.
Jessup also participates in Oakland University’s Poker Walk every year. The Poker Walk is a fun 1.5-mile walk celebrating National Employee Health and Fitness Day alongside Oakland University’s Heart Walk Initiatives put on by Oakland University’s Recreation and Well-being initiative. For this event, departments are encouraged to come up with a team name and creative costumes to wear during the walk.
Jessup and her team dressed up as budget trolls for the Poker Walk this year.
