Bringing Recess To Work

By Ryan Schuster

We’re serious about promoting healthy living, physical activity and healthy eating habits.

How serious? A group of our customer service employees in Fargo took a short break during work this morning to get outside, get some light exercise and have fun. Don’t worry, we had enough other people working to answer the phones and help customers.

In observance of May being National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, our employees rolled lawn dice on the grass and passed eggs with plastic spoons (we didn’t drop any). Afterward, customer service staff enjoyed a healthy potluck. Then it was back to work helping you.

We believe that recess should be for everyone. What does your employer do to bring recess to work?
