Columbia, S.C. - BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina has cited six businesses across the state as the first winners in its LiveLifeBlueSM workplace wellness competition.

The winners are:

  • Upstate - Glen Raven Inc., Anderson (over 500 employees), Sharonview Federal Credit Union, Fort Mill (under 500 employees)
  • Midlands - SCANA Corp., Cayce (over 500 employees), South Carolina Federal Credit Union, North Charleston (under 500 employees)
  • Lowcountry - AstenJohnson, North Charleston (over 500 employees), Orient Express Hotels Inc., Charleston (under 500 employees)

BlueCross selected the companies as examples of organizations with successful workplace wellness programs. Winners were announced at recent group account meetings held in the three regions. At the same time, BlueCross opened a new LiveLifeBlue competition, challenging its large group accounts (50 employees or more) to nominate themselves for future workplace wellness honors - which include public recognition as well as a LiveLifeBlue trophy.

Health-minded individuals across the state also can get recognition and prizes through a social media extension of the LifeLifeBlue program - a photo competition open to anyone 18 or older in South Carolina. Participants can shoot a "selfie" or have a friend photograph them performing a particular wellness activity highlighted by BlueCross for the month. They upload the photo to the BlueCross Facebook page at . Entrants in the photo contest do not have to be BlueCross members.

BlueCross' large group accounts are donating prize packages for the photo competition. The April activity focus is walking or running. The April winner will receive a package from the Peace Center in Greenville: two VIP box tickets to "Phantom of the Opera," refreshments to enjoy in the box during the show and a gift certificate for Genevieve's restaurant at the theater.
