Employee wellbeing and benefits

A walking challenge can be a great start to a wellbeing initiative.

Most employees think that their employer should play a role in improving worker health and fewer than half think that their current work environment allows them to maintain good health (1). A virtual activity challenge within your organisation is a great way to tackle both of these issues.

A recent study of hotel workers who were monitoring their step count showed
"positive changes in employee engagement, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment”(2).
Fostering a corporate mentality that places focus on employee physical and mental wellbeing has shown to help lower BMI and cholesterol and reduce stress, fatigue and injury within the workforce (3).

Try Our Demo

Sometimes it's just better to see things with your own eyes! That's why we've created a little demo challenge for customers to try.

It replicates a challenge already in progress, so you'll be engaging in the same way your own participants will be when you launch yours.

How do people take part in the challenge?

After all, this only works if your employees are truly motivated by the step challenge and can easily engage with it. We've spent 5 years developing this system so it works as seamlessly as possible.

After you initially tell your staff about the team challenge and where to sign up, you can sit back and watch the rest unfold.

1. Easy Sign Up

Using the app, or your newly-set up challenge website, participants can sign up using only their email, name and whatever password they choose.

2. Creating Teams

Once they are on the system, your employees can create teams and invite other users to join.

3. Logging Activity

Once in a team, users can log their activity via the website and apps or they can sync their smart devices such as Fitbit and Google Fit and Apple Health.

That's it, that's all that's required of them. Three simple steps and they can be up and moving in a few minutes!
