Concluding on January 5, 2018, ACT Today partnered with the Center for Autism and Related Disorders and tested a successful pilot program which provided a six-week workplace wellness challenge for more than 120 participants. The project utilized a zombie-based video game for employees and winning team members were awarded with many gifts. According to Paul Rycus, Programs and Operations Manager at ACT Today, “This was more than a video game for team associates, it was an opportunity for employers and employees to assess their wellness program and team-building experiences in an effort to provide a positive change in their health and fitness behaviors. CARD has demonstrated their approval for these activities and additional team-building programs are in development.”
