Create your own workplace step challenge

Get your teams and remote workers connected and engaged in a fun and interactive step challenge to help boost employee wellbeing

Online step challenge

Big Team Challenge's virtual step challenge system allows you to create your own private activity challenge for you and your employees or charity group to participate in and track their physical activity over a number of weeks.

Take a virtual walk somewhere exciting!

While you might be walking the cold neighbourhoods around your house, why not treat your team and have them walk virtually around the sunny Gold Coast in Australia, island hop in the Caribbean, or explore the historic wonders of Mexico?
