Brian Tang We absolutely love #1! This would help us resolve some concerns about finding ways to measure competitions between teams/departments.

Thanks for sharing, Rebecca! Would you be up for a phone call to talk more about how this idea could fit into the wellness programs hubbub advocates? Our team would love to hear more!

Thanks, Kate! Here is a link to some ideas for corporate wellness programs. https://www.blueshieldca.com/employer/knowledge-center/features/healthier-workforce/workplace-wellness.sp

A previous employer of mine often held "lunch and learns" where either employees or subject matter experts would present on a wellness topic monthly. I learned some great tips on understanding and reading nutrition labels from a lunch and learn. I also recall getting snack/meal recipe ideas.

I know of other programs where employees link their wearable exercise trackers to a wellness portal and join corporate teams to compete against others in the company. They can gain extra points for consistency (ie. walking 10k steps each day for a week) and gain points for reading daily or weekly tips (ie. a card outlining the benefits of eating vegetarian 1 day/week).

The point system has been a motivator for people I know who are particularly competitive. Further, some employers offer tangible rewards for meeting goals or winning competitions (ie. a pair of headphones, a window box for growing herbs, a tent).
