Pasadena, TX – September 21, 2017 

PinnacleART held its annual Wellness Week during the week of September 11-16! Wellness Week, hosted by PinnacleART’s internal Workplace Wellness Committee, is a week dedicated to encouraging the PinnacleART team members to focus on health and wellness.

Wellness Week is an inspiring week for everyone. From the hardcore health nuts to those needing motivation and guidance on where to start, Wellness Week provides great opportunities to become more active, learn how to eat healthy, and become the best version of oneself.

Events held throughout the week included both informational sessions and physical activity / exercise. The informational sessions included the following presentations:

  • Open Enrollment/Benefits Education
  • “Living with Stress” – an Employee Assistance Program Service
  • “Staying the Course” – presented by Voya Financial
  • “Debt Management” – presented by Advancial Credit Union

To encourage physical activity, the company held several opportunities to get the body moving. These events included:

  • Team Volleyball
  • Yoga
  • Tug of War
  • Team Run
  • Team Walks
  • Ongoing month-long step challenge
  • Fit Company Challenge

During the team volleyball event, held on Monday, four teams competed against each other for the top title. On Tuesday after work, several team members joined together for a team run. Then on Wednesday, Rasa Yoga, a yoga studio based in Webster, Texas, joined the PinnacleART team on campus to lead an evening yoga class. Thursday evening included the tug-of-war competition and on Saturday Wellness Week concluded with PinnacleART’s participation in a Fit Company Challenge. This event—held at Houston Sports Park and hosted by Fit Company—is a team fitness challenge in which Houston companies compete against one other to earn the title of Fittest Company.

Other wellness related events included a Wellness Fair (featuring 11 vendors), Wellness Trivia, fresh fruit day, and free flu shots for those insured by the company. For each event an employee attended, their names were placed into a raffle for prizes such as a Fitbit, a BetterBack (posture support), and various PinnacleART promotional gear.

PinnacleART’s Workplace Wellness team thanks everyone for participating, and encourages everyone to remain active and healthy!
