Realityworks just finished taking part in a 12-week On the Move online challenge spanning April, May and June of 2017. Overall, eighty-four companies representing more than 85,000 employees participated in this challenge. Realityworks was designated as one of the top five most active companies in the Small Business category of the national On the Move Company Challenge! The On the Move Challenge, developed by the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA), partners with organizations around the country to incorporate more movement and improved cultures of well-being for employees.
Here is what some of our employees have said about the On the Move Challenge:
“Participating in Realityworks’ On the Move challenge was a fun, easy way to ensure I was getting regular exercise – nothing like a little friendly competition to stay motivated! Completing the weekly assessment modules took only a few minutes every week, and I was able to sync my activities with my Fitbit so logging move points was super easy as well. I’m very thankful to work at a company that works so hard to promote health and fitness, from standing desks to challenges like this!” -Emily Kuhn, Communications Specialist
“The On The Move Challenge was a great way to get conversations going with coworkers about health and fitness. It was fun to motivate each other to be more active and talk about ways we could do that. I’m looking forward to keeping those conversations going now that the challenge is over.” -Kati Stacy, Marketing Communications Coordinator
“I enjoyed the On The Move Challenge because it motivated me to stay active all the time, while providing a fun and easy to use interface to keep track of my progress!” -Alex Baca, Business Development Representative
When asked about why WELCOA creating the On the Move Initiative, Ryan Picarella, President of WELCOA responded, “On the Move was designed to build a culture for more movement into an organization. Traditional wellness program challenges do not zero in on culture change or connect employees with ‘whys’ for being active that matter to them—so we created something that did.” Realityworks shares this vision and is excited to have been a part of changing the conversation around physical activity to help employees live a thriving life of meaning and purpose.
