On October 8th, TEC Corp, Thompson Electric and Electric Innovations offices in Sioux City, IA., all participated in the Iowa – Healthiest State Walk. This is the 4th annual Healthiest State Walk and this is the 2nd year that TEC, TE and EI have taken part in the walk. This year, we had 21 healthy minded employees participate in the walk. Erin Stabile was the coordinator for this year’s walk and did an outstanding job in getting 21 employees to walk the 1.7 mile distance.
As part of Iowa’s efforts to become the #1 state in well-being by 2016, the Healthiest State Initiative has identified five priorities on which to focus over the next couple years. These Focus 5 priority areas include:
Decreasing the number of Iowans who smoke
Increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables
Increasing the number of Iowans who are learning or doing something interesting daily
Increasing the number of Iowans who have visited the dentist in the last year
Increasing the number of Iowans who feel their boss treats them like a partner at work

We look forward to next year’s Healthiest State Walk and to challenging all of our Iowa employees to make Iowa, the #1 healthiest state.
