At InfoMart, employees continue to report a high level of satisfaction on the job despite growing work volume, and we do our best to provide our employees with varied opportunities to balance work-life with personal pursuits. InfoMart is more than just a workplace; it’s a caring community that brings people together beyond the duties of the job.
InfoMart’s I’M Fit committee organizes fitness activities and distributes information on healthy living. The group conducts a Biggest Loser challenge every year, starting January 1st and running through the middle of March. Cash prizes are awarded in male and female categories for the greatest percentage of weight lost at both mid-term and final weigh-ins.
In addition to the yearly weight-loss competition, I’M Fit organizes mid-afternoon company recesses and monthly fitness challenges, such as the 30-day plank challenge.
The I’M Giving committee organizes and conducts fundraisers and service activities both inside InfoMart and within the community.
