Workplace Challenge is NOW live in Somerset!
The County Sports Partnership Network announced that it will be launching a new free online activity logger in January 2014.
The platform will be the first in the UK to run in parallel with a range of activity offline, designed to motivate and inspire workplaces across the country - comprising of challenges, programmes and competitions.
More than half of the County Sports Partnerships will take part in the first phase of the campaign, helping the nation to ‘Get Started’ in the New Year showing people where to find activities that they enjoy and log their progress. Everything from active travel to work through to participation in sports such as swimming, football and golf will count towards the log andbe converted to points to enable workplaces to track progress and compete in national and local leader boards.
The platform, which has received funding support from Sport England and is supported by the British Heart Foundation’s Health at Work programme, is built on the growing trend for digital sharing. The platform enables people to track their activity, analyse their calorie burn and even see how much carbon dioxide they have helped to save by walking or cycling to work. Similar to a ‘Like’ on Facebook, people can also ‘High Five’ their colleagues for doing well.
