Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 18, 2014

Today, 15 CLEARLINK employees will volunteer in the warehouse of the Utah Food Bank. They will also present a check for $2,540, which is a result of CLEARLINK donating ten dollars for every pound of positive change during the company’s annual fitness competition. Utah Food Bank is able to turn every $1 donation into $8 worth of goods and services.

“We love to hear about creative ways that companies engage their employees to make an impact on Utah’s hunger,” said Ginette Bott, Utah Food Bank’s Chief Development Officer. “A weight loss challenge is a great way to encourage employees to give back to their community, while taking care of their health. We are grateful to CLEARLINK employees for their annual commitment to our mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide.”

CLEARLINK has created an award winning health and wellness program, and the annual fitness competition is part of the program. The competition is three-fold in purpose: 1) facilitate a culture of wellness and encourage healthy lifestyle changes, 2) generate engagement among employees, and 3) creatively give back to the community.

“We encourage a culture that values wellness and building relationships,” said Cammie Cable, CLEARLINK’s Vice President of Human Resources. “It is our goal, with opportunities such as this, to create meaningful ways for employees to connect more deeply to their community, while improving themselves personally.”

In 2013, CLEARLINK was named one of America’s top 100 companies to work for according to Outside magazine, and CEO, Phil Hansen was recognized as the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year® in the Services category of the Utah Region. Recently, in 2014, CLEARLINK’s 360 Fit Wellness program has been awarded the Healthy Worksite Gold Award and the Corporate Wellness by Gold’s Gym Diamond Award.
