The Global ChallengeHow It Works

How The Global Challenge Works

Each year, for 100 days, hundreds of thousands of employees around the world compete in teams of seven as the Global Challenge takes them on a journey that will improve both their physical and psychological health. It is comprised of five modules that highlight key areas for leading a healthy and active lifestyle – all delivered with a high dose of fun and a feel-good factor.

Easy to Roll Out

Teams of 7

Employees sign up in teams of 7, which creates healthy competition, support and motivation to lead a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, it ensures that a broad range of employees, including the health skeptics, join the fun.
