Building a Culture of Health

Posted by Matthew on 08.03.2016

treadmill-deskBack in 2012, the Washington Post featured WCS as one of the healthiest workplaces in the DC area. Much has changed in the last four years — dozens of new employees, a brand new office space — but our commitment to workplace wellness has never wavered.

I was thrilled when Bethesda Magazine included us in a recent article on office workouts (along with Discovery Communications, Marriott International, Honest Tea, and others). It’s proof that even after years of exponential growth, our fundamental culture of health has remained consistent.

New clients often ask how they can build a culture of health for themselves. Every workplace is different, but in our experience, it’s like any other good habit. When the office is busy and hectic, it’s tempting to skip the day’s Tabada session. But that’s when our employees need it most! Short breaks, whether for exercise or meditation, boost productivity and help keep everyone going.

Our own Juliet Rodman is featured prominently in the Bethesda Magazine article, and for good reason: she keeps us moving. Day after day, Juliet makes sure we never forget to take time out for exercise and relaxation. Thanks, Juliet!
