Ridgefield Park, NJ (PRWEB) February 19, 2009
Prudent Publishing's GalleryCollection.com, the leading business Christmas cards and holiday cards publisher, announced today it is sponsoring half of the membership fees for all employees taking part in a locally held corporate WeightWatchers 17-week program.
"With all the delicious treats that come through our offices during the holidays and of course there's our annual Christmas party, we know we're guilty of contributing to the expanding waist lines of our employees," admitted H.L. DeVore, Chief Marketing Officer. "It only seems right that we do our share to help any employee wanting to get rid of some holiday pounds."
Eleven employees took the Christmas cards company up on its offer and are enrolled in WeightWatchers meetings, which began last week. With the sponsorship of the membership fee, each employee is paying under $100 for the entire session.
"Just as our employees are devoted to Prudent Publishing, we are devoted to the happiness and health of our employees," DeVore continued. "And in this time of economic downturn, we want our employees to know that their happiness is of utmost importance to us. We are a team, and in order to survive this recession, we'll need our team to be running strong."

WeightWatchers was founded in 1963 by Queens, New York homemaker, Jean Nidetch, who invited her friends over once a week to discuss weight loss. Today, WeightWatchers operates on a global scale helping an estimated one million people work towards their weight-loss goals. To learn more, visit http://www.weightwatchers.com.
