At RBS, we believe that when employees are healthy and having fun, everyone wins! For the month of October, RBS and RBSE team members had an opportunity to participate in a contest we call “Walktober”. Participating employees were randomly assigned to teams and competed for gift cards and of course, bragging rights! The teams tracked not only their daily steps, but also other healthy habits like eating fruits and vegetables, attending fitness classes, and utilizing their stand-up desks while working. Trash talk and side bets between teams were encouraged, the losers graciously making donations to charity.
We’re pleased to announce the winning team, “Rick and the Blister Sisters!”

Rick and his sisters will each receive a $25 gift card.
In addition, Team “Call Us Butter ‘Cause We on a Roll!” accepted the honor of “Best Team Name” this year.
The contest was organized by our ENCORE team, the group tasked with organizing employee events and initiatives that promote a healthy lifestyle and support the mantra of our internal culture:
• Encourage others’ success
• New ideas; anticipate problems
• Create financial value for our clients
• Ownership of issues towards solution
• Reach for life balance
• Embody a positive approach
I am grateful that so many of our employees participated and am glad to say that those healthy habits seem to be sticking, as many of us are still taking breaks to walk around the building and enjoy this beautiful Tennessee fall weather.
Congratulations to our winners, and to all who participated!
