Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

Protection 1, the largest full service business and home security company in the U.S., today announced the launch of an employee health and wellness challenge in celebration of the company’s 25th anniversary. The competition, termed the 250,000 Step Challenge, begins September 25 and lasts 25 days.

Protection 1 differentiates itself through a branded customer service experience, which is achieved in part, through providing the right employee experience. The company has seen that employees who are supported and encouraged to lead a balanced, healthy lifestyle extend that care and support to customers.

“With so much focus and concern about health care, we want to create an environment that supports our employees’ efforts to get healthy and stay healthy," said Timothy J. Whall, chief executive officer, Protection 1. “A happy, healthy employee benefits the company and our customers in many ways – as well as the employee’s family and community. Our Challenge is a fun way to draw awareness to our day-to-day movement. With ‘sitting’ being coined as ‘the new smoking’ – all of us want to find ways to be active.”

The challenge kicks off Wednesday, September 25, and will run for 25 days until Saturday, October 19.

Participants receive pedometers to count their steps throughout the challenge, with the steps then being entered and logged using an online tracker. Prizes will be awarded for milestones including the 125,000-step mark, the 250,000-step mark and a top prize to the competitor with the most steps company-wide. All participants who enter their steps using the tracker will be entered into drawings held every Monday during the challenge.

“Employees are placing predictions for the performance of different branches and exchanging challenges in the name of sportsmanship,” continued Whall. “Even the Sr. Team has been called out to see if they can beat the rest of the company. It should be a great competition.”
