With the health and fitness trend not going anywhere anytime soon, Cotton & Company decided to join in! With long hours and busy schedules it can be easy to forget about your health so in an effort to not only get healthier but also promote a healthy work environment, COTTON B FIT was born.
It started with a nutri-bullet in the kitchen, with protein and fruit to make smoothies. Cotton has also offered balance chairs to some employees to promote good posture and a strong core on long workdays. Many of us have taken the opportunity to leave work a little early to grab a yoga class together or walk one of Stuart’s beautiful bridges. Promoting these healthy habits has relieved stress and improved productivity. It also allows us to get to know our co-workers in an environment outside of work, talk about a fun group of people!
Continuing on our healthy journey, more than a handful of employees are opting for a standing desk and just last week several Cottonites ran, for some, their very first 5K-trail run! Not only did the Cotton B Fit team show up, but also took home most of the awards. At least one award in EACH AGE group was handed out to a Cotton employee. We think we are on to something, and we will continue to support our employee’s healthy endeavors. Keep an eye out for what #cottonbfit does next!
