Tandem hosts Health & Wellness Week
By: Phil Sneed
The start of October was Tandem's 18th birthday and we couldn't be happier.
At Tandem Logistics, we create healthy and fun work atmospheres. While completing work in a timely manner is important, so too is the satisfaction of employees.
And from Sept. 19 to 23, we held our quarterly Health & Wellness week for all Tandem employees.
The theme this time around was Fall & Football. We decorated the break room with football in mind, now that high school, college and professional teams are all back in action.
To kick off the week, we had football-inspired Bingo. As Tandem employees completed their cards it was not uncommon to hear loud shouts of "Football!" throughout the building.
Trivia Tuesday was on the day's itinerary. Fresh hot air popcorn was made available as a snack while multiple games were played throughout the hours.
At the midweek point, we encouraged all employees to bring a brown bag lunch to enjoy in the conference and break room areas. While eating lunch, employees were able to play numerous games such as Connect4, Flipping Frogs, SkipBo, Uno and Rummikub, among many others.
The owner and manager of the local gym, Anytime Fitness, stopped by Tandem to talk about the brand new facility opening nearby. Tandem staff learned more information about the facility and received coupons and other neat freebies.
The end of the week kicked off with a morning full of peanut butter banana smoothies, fun facts and more trivia.
During lunch we held an outdoor tailgate complete with grilled hotdogs and burgers. But a healthy week isn't complete without some type of physical activity. A scavenger hunt was held to help everyone burn off the lunch.
Employees were given a set of clues to find hidden items in order to progress. Everyone who participated received a ton of prizes that included NFL and collegiate keychains, koozies, lunch coolers, stress balls, coffee mugs, footballs lanyards, pens and more.
The week ended with lots of laughs and strong participation. All Tandem employees had a great time, and we're excited to see what's to come for the Q4 week in December.
