21-Day Salad Challenge
Corporate Salad Challenge
Thank you for your interest in the Back In Line Family Chiropractic & Wellness 21-Day Salad Challenge. The challenge is a quick and easy way to promote wellness in your workplace through proper nutrition. The goal of this program is to establish healthy habits in employees while accepting and accommodating differences in taste preferences and lifestyles. Wellness programs in the workplace decrease health insurance costs, increase employee productivity, and build camaraderie. Healthy employees make for happy employees. We would love to include your company in pursuing our mission at Back In Line of “making healthy contagious!” The more buzz about real wellness, the better!
What to expect
The 21-Day Salad Challenge presentation is about 30-40 minutes long, but can be adapted to a different length if necessary. In this short presentation we bestow on you some no-fail principles of healthy eating and basic wellness concepts. We are not supportive of fad diets! We encourage small changes that make your day easier and establish healthy habits long term. We will discuss the benefits of clean, whole, unprocessed nutrition through food sources, rather than supplementation. We will explain how to prepare healthy meals in bulk to increase efficiency and decrease time and money spent on groceries. Depending on the number of attendees, we can provide a lunch salad for the employees in attendance in addition to convenient salad shaker cups that can be branded with your company logo. In addition to the salad shaker and lunch salad your attendees will go home with an information packet that includes 21 healthy salad recipes, a grocery list of all items needed, a reminder of the nutritional principles discussed, and a “cheat sheet” to help them stay on track with the challenge.
As an example, the challenge we proposed to our patients and our community included the following stipulations:
- Eat a salad every day for 21 days
- Tag our clinic on social media 10 times with pictures or posts about wellness & healthy eating.
- If the above are accomplished, participants are eligible for prizes, courtesy of Back In Line.
There are several options for this presentation. The stipulations and reward of your challenge will be customized to your employees and attendees. The specific decisions that will need to be made are discussed in detail below. We hope to tailor this to your employees for the most beneficial outcome. If you have a suggestion outside of the options listed below, feel free to propose modifications.
Salad shakers with company logos can be purchased. Prices of the shakers vary depending on the quantity ordered. We were able to get 100 Back In Line shakers for approximately $4.50 per shaker (this included the logo, tax, and shipping). Extra shakers not used for the presentation work well as company giveaways for clients and customers!
If you do not want to invest in your own shakers, we can offer you shakers with the Back In Line logo for a discounted price of $4.00 per shaker, as we get a bit of an advertising boost from their dispersal. Knowing the approximate number of attendees will help in planning this event.
We will supply a salad-based lunch at a cost of $5 per attendee. Salads can be customized to any allergies or sensitivities your employees may have. If you would like to have lunch provided, we as that you inform us of the number of attendees at least one week in advance of your planned presentation.
If you would like us to provide lunch and shaker cups, both items can be bundled for $8.00 per attendee!
Stipulations and Prizes
The constant stipulation of this challenge is that employees are encouraged to eat 21 healthy salads in 21 days. You, or your company’s wellness representative, will need to determine some specific requirements of the challenge. For example, we required our participants to tag Back In Line on social media to be eligible for prizes. This can be customized to benefit your company, rather than Back In Line. However, this avenue provided an easy way for us to boost our social media presence (very helpful!) and keep track of how many people accomplished the challenge. You may need to appoint a person on your company wellness committee to keep track of employee accomplishments either electronically, or in another fashion.
Prizes will need to be determined and supplied by your company. We chose to give away things that promoted our mission of wellness, such as free yoga, cycling, sauna sessions, and massage therapy. You are welcome to give away anything you feel will encourage your employees to follow through with the challenge for 21 days.
Printed materials such as the grocery list, recipe list, and nutrition guidelines, will be provided by Back In Line free of charge. We do ask that you inform us of the setting in which the presentation will take place (welcome area, conference room, etc.) and whether or not you will have a projector available to display a PowerPoint presentation.
Scheduling & Attendance
With the guidelines listed above, this presentation works best with a minimum of 10 attendees, and a maximum of 60. If you are anticipating more or less than this range, please let us know so we can brainstorm ways to accommodate your quantity! Where there’s a will there’s a way, right?
If you have any questions or concerns about the program do not hesitate to contact us. We are excited that you are interested in making health contagious within your company and our community!
