Dozens of workers in downtown Tulsa walked off the job on Friday.  They didn't quit.  Employees of Blue Cross Blue Shield kicked off their "Experience Wellness Everywhere" campaign by taking a stroll outside the office.

Workers in four states all hit the pavement at the same time.

"Keeping our employees happy is very important and by being well and having good health, their morale is higher, productivity is greater, they have less absenteeism. We just have a really good general outlook," said Gabrielle Lucier.

Organizers encourage everyone to walk whenever they get a break during the workday.
