Bond Beebe, a certified public accounting and advisory firm with offices in Bethesda, Maryland and Alexandria, Virginia, announced today the kick-off of their first-ever Bond Beebe Tax Season Walking Challenge. Covering the traditional tax season of January 31 to April 15, all Bond Beebe employees and Partners will be assigned to one of six teams, given a pedometer to wear at both work and home, and are encouraged to incorporate as much walking as possible into their daily routine all across the DC metropolitan area. One of the primary reasons for this challenge is to provide a healthy stress reliever during the busiest period for the accounting profession; both teams and individuals will be recognized for their achievements.
The company-wide challenge will work by every employee wearing their pedometer as often as they wish at work and home, during the week and weekends, from January 31 until April 15. Teams will report the results for their team members on a weekly basis. At the Firm’s annual tax party later this year, teams and individuals will be rewarded for both overall steps taken and their increase in steps over the several week period.
Said Cynthia Dietrich, Director of Human Resources at Bond Beebe, “Everyone here has been enthusiastic about the Challenge; at a time of year when hours are long and self-care is neglected, we thought that encouraging a habit like walking would alleviate stress, improve health, encourage teamwork and boost morale. And even though some teams and individuals may take home some sort of prize, everyone truly wins by participating.”
