    27. Wellness Bulletin Board • Develop wellness bulletin board or digital screen that displays Sibley’s wellness policy. • This board highlights important messages from the policy once a week where suggestions for healthy activities will be posted along with pictures displaying employees post pictures of them engaging in these healthy activities • Quarterly incentive: the family who incorporates the most activities in a photo album will win a small quarterly prize • At the end of the year the family that has completed the most activities wins a grand family prize • Examples include: • Employees bring family recipes to place on wellness bulletin board or email fellow employees • Sibley employee family day at your local, state park or other venues • Wellness Committee and Sibley employees can send out suggestions for physical activities families can do at home.
