NBA Lockout Won't Keep Employees From 5 on 5 Wellness

Health Enhancement Systems announces a new 2-minute video for their 5 on 5 employee wellness program. Professionals may not be playing due to the lockout but wellness managers can help improve employee nutrition with this basketball-themed program.

PRLog - Nov. 23, 2011 - MIDLAND, Mich. -- It may be a hoopless year for the NBA, but corporate teams will score big improvements in eating habits and overall health with 5 on 5, a basketball-themed worksite health program from Health Enhancement Systems (www.HealthEnhancementSystems.com). Whether participants are basketball junkies counting the days until March Madness or junk food fanatics looking to break bad habits, 5 on 5 engages men and women in friendly competition to make good nutrition rewarding and fun.

In this wellness program, participants step up to the line and make 1-, 2-, and 3-point shots while adopting lifelong healthy eating habits. Teams of 5 compete each day in an online basketball tournament, scoring points by logging behaviors, such as drinking water, eating vegetables and fruits, avoiding excess caffeine, and sharing meals. Each day the shot clock counts down the day’s game time. At the end of the program, the team with the highest score wins the tournament.

As teams slam-dunk daily games while keeping their eye on the tournament title, they’re learning more than how to make better nutrition choices. They’re also building camaraderie, reinforcing personal commitment and accountability, and helping to create a corporate culture of employee health.

Because employees often eat together around the workplace, positive peer pressure pays off when coworkers encourage each other. Designed to leverage the power of social support to promote good nutrition, 5 on 5 is based on more than 30 studies that show how social support in the workplace can boost employee engagement. See the Health Enhancement Systems white paper, Social Support: Impact on Health and the Bottom Line, for more information on the studies (http://whitepapers.HealthEnhancementSystems.com/sswp).

"5 on 5 came directly from research showing that when people work together on teams toward a health improvement goal, they can achieve greater success," says Dean Witherspoon, president and founder of Health Enhancement Systems. "With integrated social support, healthy eating can become a new workplace norm."
