The S2H Challenge motivates employees to become more active by encouraging healthy competition and rewarding participation. S2H Challenge participants wear an S2H pedometer and walk their way to health and rewards.
In addition to creating a fun, active culture on their frontline - the workplace - the S2H Challenge can save participating companies on their bottom line, as well. The S2H Corporate Wellness Challenge allows companies to track and report quantifiable data to a healthcare carrier which, in turn, may result in decreased healthcare costs.
"The S2H Challenge is a low-cost, customized solution that offers a validated technology," said Seth A. Tropper, president and CEO of S2H. "Most healthy lifestyle programs work on the honor system, the S2H Challenge is different. It's patented and proven technology validates physical activity milestones. S2H motivates, educates, and rewards employees for healthy activity."
Best of all, the S2H Challenge works! National Grid launched the program and held a Challenge trial. During an 11-week period, National Grid employees burned over 11 million calories and tracked their weight to lose over 1,400 pounds.
"National Grids pilot program reflects real results," Tropper said. "Over 80 percent of participants maintained or increased their level of physical activity as a result of the program, and over 86 percent of participants are likely or very likely to continue participation beyond the pilot."
When a company takes the Challenge, S2H takes it from there. The technology company creates a custom, branded online Wellness Platform that will successfully entice and engage employees in improving their health and well-being. Additionally, S2H will help companies rally employees to participate with an in-house marketing campaign.
"From setup to management, to reporting and administrative tools, S2H is committed to helping each company launch a Wellness Challenge to motivate employees to get moving and get healthy," Tropper added. "This is a great way to help employees get healthy and improve productivity. The S2H Challenge produces amazing results without a huge investment in company time."
Switch2Health promotes corporate health and wellness through its social-media based S2H Challenge for corporations. Employees join the program, get active and earn exciting rewards. Visit www.s2h.com for more information.
