Getting healthy is always more fun when you do it with someone else. So, the Virgin Pulse option to participate in a company challenge adds a healthy dose of friendly competition to wellness!
You can challenge your friends (colleagues whom you have “friended” in the program) to get moving in a fun, team challenge to take the most steps or burn the most calories.
There are a few different types of company challenges:
- Featured Step challenges
- Spotlight challenges
- Promoted Healthy Habit Challenges
Featured Step Challenges have always been a great source of motivation, engagement, and friendly competition for your company. There are three (3) types of Featured Steps Challenges:
- Basic – you need to take a certain amount of steps to win a company challenge reward.
- Staged – the entire Company is working together to unlock each of the Stages as the goal during the Challenge is to unlock all Stages.
- Destination – you and your team need to accumulate steps to unlock certain virtual destinations around the world map.
Spotlight Challenge can motivate a competition in any area of well-being: Steps, Sleep, Activity or Active Minutes, and Mindful Minutes, with enhanced Onboarding to introduce a theme, education, and health information.
With Spotlight Challenge, members who are not interested in strictly Activity-based Challenges will have an opportunity to engage in different relevant Programs and activities.
Members can also learn different strategies to help them start new habits or build upon existing ones in a fun and supportive environment. Members set meaningful and personalized goals to aim for and celebrate their progress as well as the progress of others along the way. This success momentum drives you to sustain your progress even after the Challenge has ended.
Promoted Healthy Habit Challenges are a great way to start a healthy competition for Members, by tracking a specific Healthy Habit that is promoted in the challenge. You can choose to take part in the challenge and share your success with colleagues who joined the challenge.
Note: Before the challenge start date, be on the lookout for an email with all the important details regarding the Challenge, as you do not want to miss your challenge invitation!
Company Challenges will encourage you and your colleagues to use the program daily, and help you achieve your wellness goals over the long term, all while having fun!
