On October 9, 2018, Kim Koetz and Cindy Jensen, members of the wellness committee, attended the North Dakota Worksite Wellness Summit in Fargo, ND. Workplace Wellness the Works was the theme this year and was presented by Laura Putnam, MA. Laura is the author of the book “Workplace Wellness that Works” and the founder/CEO of Motion Infusion. Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux, twin standouts from Grand Forks on the University of North Dakota women’s hockey team, who also were part of the U.S. Women’s hockey team who competed and took the gold medal in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, also gave a talk on their life. They talked on what it was like to win the gold medal and how they were a part of a women’s movement to fight gender inequality in sports and how that can be applied to the workplace. Part two of this summit will be taking place sometime in December.
The wellness committee once again provided meals for all locations that were open weekends during harvest. The extra efforts by those who work extended hours during the busiest times of the year are appreciated by everyone at Maple River Grain and Agronomy, LLC.
