Workplace Wellness Challenges
There are two major trends taking over workplace health - gamification & wearable tech. Healthworks brings these two forces together to get employees fit and healthy, both physically and mentally.
We know that one of the quickest and easiest ways to lift a person’s morale and motivation in the workplace is to get them engaged in activity. Why not try workplace fitness challenges?
They not only boost performance, mental health and energy, but they also establish a sense of camaraderie amongst workers, cultivating in a healthy and energised work culture.
We offer both online challenges and paper-based challenges that don’t need regular online access.
Online Employee Health Challenges:
A team-based challenge helps employees increase their physical activity in a unique, fun and interesting way. One of the challenges available is a 4 week “virtual tour” down the Great Ocean Road, which employees cover by logging their daily exercise. Our fitness challenges can also help improve sleep patterns and alertness as well as decrease stress levels and assist with weight control.
Exciting news! Our team have been busy behind the scenes creating a new and improved fitness challenge! If you would like to be kept in the loop about the new challenge, fill out the following form:
Team-based and Individual Health Challenges
Not everyone has access to a computer or device, we understand that. We’ve developed several offline challenges, which employee can do with pen and paper. Engaging with expertly designed printed materials, these challenges provide a structured process that employees can take to change their bad habits and establish healthy behaviours.
This individual step challenge encourages employees to take 10,000 steps a day. The challenge takes employees on a 4-week trek from Kakadu to Uluru. Employees receive a card which they can track their progress on. Your team can benefit from the Outback Walkabout with improved alertness and energy levels, decreased stress levels and improved weight control and fitness.
Chews to Change
Chews to Change is a simple but effective program that motivates and encourages your employees to make small nutritional changes that deliver big results. It runs for 3 weeks. This program not only provides employees with the tools, skills and support to take control of their nutrition but also helps them improve their overall health and productivity.
