No-shave November. Moustache for November.
I learned about “Movember” only a year ago.
Part of my job is to create a fun environment to promote
work-life balance in our workplace.
Every month, I make sure that there is something
we can observe or celebrate.
I came across an article about “Movember Foundation”.
Growing a moustache is a visual reminder of how important it is to take responsibility for our own health.
SO, last month, I encouraged all men in our department to put down their razors to show support for the movement. We also encouraged the ladies to get involved. They played a vital role in the success of Movember by supporting and encouraging the men in their livse to get involved
For one hairy month, general information/articles were cascaded thru email to increase awareness of male cancers (testicular and prostate) and to consider what actions can be taken to stay healthy and to help each other with health issues.
We ended the event by holding a competition and awarding the best “MO BRO”.
