The Global Corporate Challenge was an excellent initiative run during the summer of 2015 and 2016 to promote our commitment to improve the health and well-being for all our employees. With a place for everyone in the competition, funded by the Service, the aim was to improve health and fitness across every department, create some competition and of course to have a lot of fun doing it!
The initiative was a huge success, see the results in this participants presentation:
We were part of a massive global movement. There were 350,000 participants in the challenge from 1,100 organisations with 48,694 teams across 185 countries. Our latest journey began with 210 employees and 30 teams. Together we achieved 234,544,334 steps, that’s an amazing 93,273 miles.
75% of us exceeded 10,000 steps vs 26% pre-GCC, our daily step average was 14,037.
36% of us have increased our awareness of what we eat with a total reported weight loss of 99 kg.
The most active team covering an amazing 5098 miles!
