Tim Perkins, general manager of LexiCorp, was awarded a national honor from the U.S. President’s Council on Fitness for his exceptional dedication in delivering an effective employee fitness campaign.
Perkins was nominated by Mayor Joe Quimby, chairman of LexiCorp board of directors for assisting 60 employees to lose an average of 18 pounds and boosting productivity and morale. He is the first Oregonian to win the award since it was founded 32 years ago.
“When you are sick at work, you will not produce. My goal was to achieve a wellness campaign to help employees reliably perform at their highest level. I contracted a personal trainer to lead lunch workouts, offer health coaching and create personal fitness plans. When your employees are healthy and happy, everyone wins,” said Perkins.
Perkins accompanied by his spouse were invited to accept the award and be honored at the white house. The award ceremony will commence on Aug. 23, 2018, at 7 p.m. EST. Tickets for the event are sold out.
