Ideas on the programs to motivate remote workers to exercise/be physically active? Apart from step counts and paying for a gym membership. We already have monthly reimbursement but I'm looking into ways to engage people and motivate them to actually use the money for the purpose. Some internal campaigns or funny competition but how to measure progress?

Supporting access to exercise/wellness activities for employees is terrific. I’m wondering though - where does this sense of responsibility to motivate and monitor their fitness come from? I know it’s not just you/your firm…it’s a prevalent theme these days.

A weekly reoccurring meeting that is specifically blocked off for physical activity. This way everyones calendar is block and theres less of an excuse to get moving!

Accenture benefits? 1. Mega backdoor roth. Do you guys have it? I heard you have it but there’s a 15k limit? And does it allow in-plan conversion to be setup automatically? 2. 401k match. Say I have a base of 180k with $1:$1 match upto 6% of my base. Does that mean I will get $10.8k matched? Is there a cap on match? 3. ESPP discount. I know that a 15% discount is applicable, but on what price? Average of last 6 months or today’s price, whatever is lower? Pls help. Thnx!

Had to work 2 projects that required me to work day, night, and multiple weekends because SM relied mostly on me and the rest of my team weren't capable of delivering quality work hence more weight shifted to my plate. Few sleepless nights have been hard and I always hope it doesn't hurt my baby. Thank God, my second trimester is easier as nausea's gone by then. Countdown to 5 more weeks when this project finally where I'll be 30 wks prego, it just reminds me how strong we all are. I'm also asking the same SM to approve my maternity leave in 2 weeks and he doesn't know I'm pregnant yet (I don't show much and don't disclose unless asked explicitly because I feel shame due to being a 2nd year analyst). He always thanks me in front of partners for my exemplary work, and I will just be so proud when he finds out I managed to do all that while pregnant 💜

Looking for some advice. Currently contributing 10% to 401k and maxing out Roth IRA, and remainder of savings (usually $800-$1200 per month) putting in a HYSA for a down payment on a house. Hoping to buy in 2-3 years once we (partner & I) have a sizable down payment. Should I continue to put all my non-retirement savings in an HYSA for a downpayment or should I also contribute to my brokerage and invest to grow wealth? (24yo, $85k)
