Lumeta Employees ‘Lose to Win,’ by Shedding Over Four Hundred Pounds and Supporting Local Food Bank
SOMERSET, N.J., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ — Lumeta Corporation, the leading provider of network discovery solutions for enterprise and government agencies, today announced the successful conclusion of its 2009 Lose to Win challenge, a healthy living program in which Lumeta employees lost a combined total of over 400 pounds.
For every pound that employees lost from January through Mid-November, the company donated $10.00 to the Somerset Food Bank of New Jersey. Employees also brought in non-perishable food goods and personal cash donations – for a total donation of $4,175, plus a large quantity of food. In addition, employees were offered cash incentives for the weight they have lost.
The program’s genesis came out of a corporate offsite management meeting in December 2008. Employees were initially joking about how much they were eating – three big meals plus continual snacks every day. But when they began thinking about how they could make the company a better place to work and be a better global citizen, the ensuing discussion resulted in the “Lose to Win” as a contest.
“I’m very proud of what the company has accomplished with the ‘Lose to Win’ challenge,” said David Hickey, CEO of Lumeta. “Everyone involved has a much more positive self image, and the program has brought employees closer together. We’re proud that our efforts will not only benefit our own health, but will also benefit the Somerset Food Bank of New Jersey.”
