Everyone loves a good challenge…that is, as long as it is properly organized, fairly assessed and backed with motivation and incentives. Here at Wellworks For You, we’ve mastered the art of designing and implementing wellness challenges at corporations like yours. If your employees seem to be bored, lacking motivation to make positive changes or simply looking for some accountability in their efforts to live a healthier lifestyle, then you may be interested in some of our wellness challenge ideas.
When we work with corporations on setting up challenges, we usually recommend an 8-12 week challenge that focuses on something measurable that lends itself to goal-setting and manageable achievement in the areas of fitness, diet/weight loss and stress management. We also recommend utilizing our custom Wellness Portal to track and manage participant’s metrics and goals.
