Our Twist on the Corporate Run
The Biz Dash is St. Louis’ version of the corporate run which has become widely popular in many cities across the country. The heart of the event is to bring our community together and promote a healthy lifestyle. Studies have shown that the healthier (and happier) the employee, the more productive they are in the workplace thereby attributing to a higher achieving organization. The Biz Dash is all about inclusion, so everyone from your office is encouraged to get involved. It’s an event you don’t want to miss!
“We use this as a wellness initiative so we encourage our employees to come out, walk or run… but really get fit and active. Just to see people come together… comradery, the team… we are just glad to be a part of [the Biz Dash].”
– Ann Marr, Global Human Resources – World Wide Technology
