Following the success of last year’s internal engagement campaign, ‘Race to Rio’, we have launched High Five!, a company-wide challenge in which WYG employees will be taken on a journey to climb virtual peaks around the world.
Working in teams, colleagues are challenged to climb every mountain by tracking physical activity using Strava under five sporting categories (running, cycling, walking, swimming, and rowing) and converting to distance climbed.
Participants will have the opportunity to collect high fives along the way and will accumulate to levels:
Level 1 – Low Five (0-15 activities logged)
Level 2 – High Five (16-30 activities logged)
Level 3 – Super High Five (31-45 activities logged)
Level 4 – Mega High Five (46-60 activities logged)
Level 5 – Ultimate High Five! (61 + activities logged) - King/Queen of the Mountain
Levels will be represented as a badge that is added to a participant’s profile page and will be updated throughout the campaign depending on number of activities logged.
Every activity counts and everyone is working towards achieving the same goal. This internal engagement campaign is inclusive, addressing all employees, whatever their levels of fitness, but, most of all, it is fun. And, in addition to increased physical activity and associated health benefits, the campaign also brings people together and has proved to be a great way to boost morale.
We're also delighted to have the support from our campaign partner, High5 Sports Nutrition who have provided selections packs for participants.
