BCBSNC: Employees lose 11,301 pounds in 9 months

From 2006 to 2011, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) employees continued to gain weight and their health metrics declined. In January 2012, BCBSNC decided to take a new approach to getting healthy. The company launched the “5 Ton Challenge” to encourage its 4,000 employees to lose a combined total of 10,000 pounds, or five tons. BCBSNC employees took the challenge, and after nine months, they exceeded their goal by losing 11,301 pounds.
