This is a guest post from the Cleveland Cavaliers. The organization has been immersed in Fitbit Wellness, the Fitbit corporate wellness program, over the last six months, with team members using Fitbit Flex for walking challenges and, of course, a little friendly competition.
As part of our existing All For You Wellness Program, the Cavaliers chose to implement an organization-wide walking challenge during the off-season to get our employees up and moving. As a sports and entertainment facility, there was bound to be a bit of natural (and friendly) competition, and within minutes of announcing the challenge and distributing the Fitbit Flex to nearly 200 team members, everyone was off and running… and walking… and jogging!
We received immediate feedback from Cavs team members who felt a rush of excitement when hitting their daily goal, and then setting it higher the following week to challenge themselves and each other. Some team members came into work early to kick their day off on the right foot, while others used their lunch break to get a few extra steps in. Many participants even took their afternoon meetings outside for a change of scenery and pace.
