dacadoo’s 2019 World Health Day
World Health Day is a global awareness day on health, which is celebrated every year on April 7th, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Every year, WHO chooses a different topic to draw attention on it and mobilize action. This year the topic was Universal Health Coverage, which is WHO’s number one goal.
At dacadoo, we decided to celebrate this important day with an intercompany challenge by inviting companies around the world and their employees to join a FREE intercompany corporate challenge.
The aim of this challenge was about promoting a healthy lifestyle in the workplace during the week before World Health Day 2019.
What is an intercompany challenge? It’s a friendly competition hosted on the dacadoo platform, where participants compete in company teams against other company teams by tracking their favorite activities.
Employees could track their favorite activities, any from the 115+ available on dacadoo (from yoga and dancing to walking, hiking or swimming) during the challenge duration.
Several companies accepted this initiative and participated in the challenge.
Was there a winner? Yes, there was a winner company – the one that tracked the most energy (expressed in MET h). Nevertheless, every employee that tracked something and contributed to their health and lifestyle became a winner.
The first edition of the inter-company challenge was a success.
