Sonic Boom
Sonic Boom

Bismarck Public Schools partners with Sonic Boom to provide exciting, comprehensive wellness services for employees. These services include:

Daily motivation. Sonic Boom provides daily, on-line challenges that focus on weight management, physical activity, nutrition, and stress reduction to assist employees in adopting healthier lifestyles.

Competition. All programs allow employees to compete individually or as teams. Nothing gets people revved like a little friendly competition.

Peer-to-peer awards. When one employee sees another doing something healthy, they can award a Caught Ya Bein' Healthy ticket. Earning these tickets leads to opportunities to win valuable prizes, which is motivation enough. But even better is the camaraderie it builds to have co-workers rewarding one another for healthy behaviors.

Valuable incentives. Research shows that while cash is the most-asked-for incentive, it's the least appreciated. The Sonic Boom program provides cool prizes that people will value and treasure -- and they'll remember that they earned those prizes because they made healthy improvements in their lifestyle. Plus, with built-in incentives, employees get to choose their own prizes from a catalog of over 3,000 hard-to-find items that they really want.

Fun, engaging programs. Sonic boom is anything but boring. Their programs have stepped more-than-a-little outside the box, with an energized approach to getting people involved.

Exceptional education. People are excited by learning new things -- especially when what they're learning could have profound positive effects on their health. Basic educational material on nutrition, weight-loss, physical activity, and stress reduction is fine -- and it's included as a foundation in all programs. But Sonic Boom quickly takes employees to the next level, offering enlightening, state-of-the-art science in an easy-to-understand format.

Participation in Sonic Boom is free for all BPS employees. If you are interested in joining, please contact Lisa Kudelka or Dar Wixcey.
