Invest in You
By Tyler Weaber
“Invest in You” was the 2017 theme for Londonderry Village’s employee wellness fair. Throughout the year, our Employee Wellness Committee review the many plans and details that surround this event. The Committee consists of staff members from various departments: wellness, marketing, resident services, development, nursing, business office and our chaplain. They work hard to bring new, exciting, and educational opportunities to our employees.
On Friday, October 20th from 10:00am – 3:00pm, employees filed into the Di Matteo Worship center to attend the fair that promoted ways in which they could invest in themselves. For each station an employee attended, they were rewarded by receiving a raffle ticket to enter to win an array of interesting gift baskets at the end of the fair. High Mark, Benecon, United Concordia and the Hershey Pharmacy were only some of the venders in attendance where employees could stop to get some helpful information and fun take away gifts.
Other fun stations included receiving a massage, a photo booth (including props!) and trying their luck at the “You can do it” challenge. The “You can do it” challenge was an entertaining bean bag toss game; the top 10 employee who scored the highest amount received a $25 gift card once the fair ended.
To end the fair, employees had a delicious lunch prepared by our dietary staff which included taco/chicken salads, vegetarian chili, a fruit tray and fruit infused water. On their way out the door employees dropped their raffle tickets into the baskets they wanted to have a chance at winning. The employee wellness fair is a way to bring LV staff together for some fun, educational activities and lunch that they can enjoy amongst fellow coworkers. Special thanks to our 2017 Employee Wellness Committee for a job well done!
