During the two-week program, employees teamed up with their departments to cover as much distance as possible by either running or walking. Of the 190 invited employees, more than 160 participated in the program.
To keep the participants engaged and motivated, daily leaderboard updates and statistics were provided. In addition, employees were encouraged to submit fun photos and videos for extra points. Departments had equal chances of winning as the distance covered by each department was divided by the number of employees.
The program utilized an app that tracked all distance and team efforts automatically. This allowed employees to track their progress and compare it with other teams. Moreover, the app provided a platform for employees to connect with one another, promoting a sense of community and friendly competition among teams. The program was so popular that some employees even called during the weekend to ask whether their cycling trip to buy milk could be counted towards their team’s score.
