A recent study demonstrated that after an introduction to pedometers, previously inactive individuals increased their activity levels by 2,500 steps per day. Because employers are becoming more aware of the advantages of encouraging the healthy habits of employees, workplace pedometer programs are on the rise. At Wellworks For You, we routinely help companies of all shapes and sizes implement pedometer challenge tracking programs and activities to increase overall workplace health and wellness.
Three Amazing Benefits of Implementing Workplace Pedometer Programs
Most employees spend a significant amount of time on their computers and phones. Wellworks For You understands that this comes with the territory of living in the tech age. Hence, our Smartphone app can easily sync certain devices and apps to the Wellness Portal for tracking purposes. After all, walking is one of the healthiest and easiest ways to get fit!
Check out three major advantages of incorporating workplace pedometer programs for your workplace:
- Track Progress Instantly
Wellworks For You has a Wellness Portal website and smartphone app that can seamlessly integrate with apps, such as Apple Health, MyFitnessPal, and Google Fit, that allow employees to instantly access and track their steps.
- Create Walking Challenges
Are you up for the challenge? Wellworks For You designs and manages various walking challenges via our gamification technology, including route challenges and interval challenges. All challenges have real-time leader boards so participants can monitor their progress throughout the challenge.
- Boost Workplace Camaraderie
Employees who walk together, work better together—or so studies suggest. A step challenge at work invites the spirit of “healthy competition,” but it also ignites a feeling of workplace camaraderie. In providing staff members with a positive outlet to exercise together and connect, employers will also benefit from witnessing a boost in workplace morale, reduction in absenteeism, and an increase in employee productivity.
