Virtual engagement at Swedbank with Sprintcrowd

Swedbank needed to overcome geographical barriers to encourage across-the-board engagement in company wellness activities. Limited opportunities for employees to interact and connect with each other in person due to their dispersed locations posed a challenge. 
Swedbank embraced the power of technology and partnered with Sprintcrowd, to offer live virtual group training sessions.

Problem

Swedbank’s running academy provides a dedicated space for employees to train, socialise and prepare for races.
Before the pandemic, the running academy was already a hub for employees to come together, engage in physical activity, build connections and train for running events.  However, geographical barriers hindered the scalability of in-person running sessions where employees met up with a local coach to run as a group.
Swedbank recognized the need to overcome these limitations to growth and find an innovative solution to ensure employees from different locations could participate and feel connected when participating in coached meetups.

Solution

Swedbank teamed up with Sprintcrowd, to expand the reach and impact of their running program.
Virtual-friendly technology provided meant that employees from different locations could join in coached training sessions, eliminating geographical barriers.
Sprintcrowd’s platform offered personalized coaching to all participants that was tailored to each individual’s workout needs. This meant attendees could run at their own pace while still feeling part of a larger effort-based experience, ensuring inclusivity and camaraderie.
