SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - The Blue Zones movement has become very popular in Sioux City.

Wednesday, another work site became Blue Zones Certified.

Innovative Business Consultants celebrated their Blue Zones designation with a ribbon-cutting Wednesday afternoon.

IBC took several measures to become Blue Zones certified, including having exercise equipment in their offices and forming a wellness committee.

It's an effort that has become important to the business consulting firm for the well-being of their employees and workplace.

"We knew all along this was something that was important to us and a priority," said director of health initiatives Kira Oregon. "And also just to bring some attention to how IBC takes care and supports its employees' health and well-being."

Oregon says that wellness committee has been a big help in implementing well-being policies and programs such as "Walking Wednesdays."

Employees are encouraged to walk from their office on Water Street to the local farmers market.
