Wrapping up a year-long workplace wellness initiative among its 12,000 employees, BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, named the winner of its “Workplace Wellness Challenge” competition and presented a donation to Special Olympics South Carolina on behalf of the winners. “Breaking bad health habits can be a challenge, and forming new ones takes practice, patience and persistence. But developing good health habits is worth the time and effort. So BlueCross made it a corporate priority to go beyond just providing workout facilities to offer an incentive program that would challenge our work force to live a healthy lifestyle,” said BlueCross Chief Executive Officer David Pankau.
