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 to the Global Challenge in teams of 7, which creates healthy competition, provides a support network and ensures accountability, which is a critical factor in the behavior change process.

Starter Kit

You get all the tools to make the Global Challenge a success in your organization, including materials to create excitement and drive registrations.

Measuring Up

At the start of the journey, employees measure their current health in an easy and interactive way.

The Global Challenge is a turnkey solution that’s easy to implement across your organization.
