Team building exercise with a step challenge

Team Building Remotely

We are entering a new era for businesses around the world with more and more of the workforce moving to remote working. This is an exciting prospect and has an incredible amount of positive aspect for employees such as less commuting time, lower expenses and home comforts! But it also comes with its losses. A large one of these is the social aspects that a shared workplace brings to its employees.

Connecting With Your Team

Creating team building exercises is a great way to engage with your workforce and build connections between your teams that you may have lost with everyone moving to remote working. Building these bonds between your teams is incredibly important for morale and employee motivation. The relatively low costs of these initiatives can bring in huge financial returns in the form of increased productivity, lower sick days and greater mental wellbeing.

Engaging with your remote workers

With more and more employees working remotely lately, it can be difficult to boost team morale and engage with your friends and colleagues. Creating a team walking challenge can be a great way to start building those connections back up while also creating healthy exercise routines.

Employee Wellbeing

It's almost universally acknowledged that an active and healthy member of staff is not only happier, but a more productive member of your team. Looking after your workforce's mental and physical wellbeing will likely be financially beneficial to the company in the long run. Using our step count challenge to help build a new attitude towards walking is a great first step in your company's wellbeing plan.

Different challenge modes

Our walking challenges have two modes of competion: Teams Vs Teams and One Big Challenge. Each has all of your employees getting into teams.

  • If you are running a 'Teams vs Teams' challenge, your teams will be competing against each other to complete the same route. This offers some friendly competition and is our more popular option.
  • If you are running a 'One Big Challenge', your teams are all contributing to move each other along one big route together. This option is good for smaller challenges of between 100 and 300 users. Any more than 300 and you begin to loop around the world pretty quickly!
