Industrial Commercial Systems (ICS), a mechanical contractor based in Vista, CA, hosted an employee wellness fair at their headquarters on Thursday, June 14, 2018.

Employees gathered at the event to learn about living healthy. Vendors from across San Diego County gathered to educate ICS employees about their products and services. Vendors and sponsors included an organic local produce co-op, healthy food companies, gym, health insurance provider, dentist, massage therapist, credit union and more.

The event was designed to encourage employees to visit each booth and learn something new.

"The wellness trail is our little trail of health and wellness," said Jennilyn Magee. "Each different vendor has something to do with either mental health, physical health, personal health, anything like that. You follow the trail, you learn something new, and you get a stamp, and you turn it in for a prize that relates to health."

Employees enjoyed healthy snacks, music and a dunk tank where management took the plunge to get their employees excited about their health and wellness.

"We're doing the Dice Challenge. And, when you roll the dice in here, you're going to challenge me to one of these little boxes here [workouts]. You can do up to three and get three tickets for our raffle. And, you're keeping healthy and staying fit," Vanessa Hayes explained.

Throughout the event, employees gathered stamps and raffle tickets in order to win various prizes.

"Our sole purpose of launching an employee Wellness Program is to promote physical and mental well-being, said London Adams, Human Resources Manager for ICS. "We pride ourselves as being a family-based company where our people and culture are our greatest assets. Providing education and energetic tools, combined with fun activities and challenges will ultimately create a shift towards healthy living habits."
