The problem is that successful programmes take time, research, planning and huge investment its this that keeps many UK employers from taking advantage of this invaluable resource. So what’s the solution?
Today iGlobalWellness is proud to introduce an entirely new kind of wellness initiative. The Stay Active Challenge Online will deliver the transformational results of a company-wide employee wellness programme at a fraction of the cost and with none of the hassle.
How does it work?
Competing in teams of five from across your company participants are challenged to increase their activity levels as much as possible over a five-week competition by completing daily activity challenges. From star jumps before breakfast to hula hooping at lunch each day will see a different Target Activity that all participants must aim for. All of these activities are designed to test participants while being fun and accessible for all.
Each Target Activity will earn participants a certain number of Activity Points based on that activity’s metabolic rate. So how do participants get their hard earned Points?
Well as part of your company’s bespoke Stay Active Challenge website every employee will have their own online profile. From here they’ll be able to see their Challenge Calendar, detailing each day’s Target Activity and the number of Activity Points it’ll earn them. All participants have to do is upload a photo or video of themselves doing today’s Target Activity and their Points will automatically be added. Participants will be able to see how many Points they’ve earned and which days’ Targets they’ve met so far.
On top of these individual daily Targets each week will see a new Team Target that forces team members to pull together to earn double Points. Whether its team football or a stair climb relay these Targets will forge new relationships and strengthen old ones.
All Points earned from both the individual and the team Targets will be gathered together into a team’s total score. From their profiles participants will be able to view the leader boards, which are updated in real time and show how their team stands in the competition both within their site and across the nation.
The aim of the game is simple: The team with the most Points at the end of the Challenge wins!
At the end of the programme you will have an unprecedented repository of employee photos illustrating the company's drive towards wellbeing.
Bring people together
A study published by the University of California in 2011 found that people who exercised as part of a group missed 70% fewer exercise sessions than those who tried to go it alone. And even more importantly, 86% of participants who exercised with colleagues said that they felt closer to their colleagues as a result of their shared regime. The Challenge forces participants to work together as part of a team and to engage with their competitors across the company. Teams will be able to chat though their profiles to offer support, share their success stories, and arrange their group activities.
The Challenge provides direct and invaluable data on both employee wellness and engagement. Combining this with feedback gathered throughout and after the Challenge we will compile a comprehensive company report, comprising detailed analysis of employee wellbeing and engagement as well as the effectiveness of the Challenge itself.
All this for a fraction of the cost
The entire Challenge, including the design and implementation of the website, can be delivered to all your employees from as little as £2.00 per person, a saving of £46.00 per person over the standard Challenge price.
