MoveKeeper™ is the world's first free online corporate challenge available to companies around the globe. The benefits of using this program include: improved productivity, reduced health care costs, better employee satisfaction and retention. The best part is it’s free, and compares favorably to similar programs that can cost up to US $100 per employee.
The World Health Organization recommends that individuals take 10,000 steps a day to improve their health and reduce their risk of disease. According to the Wellness Council of America, the giant chemical company Dupont realized $1.42 savings for each $1 invested in a wellness program, the Travellers Corporation claims a $3.40 for every $1 invested in health promotion, and many other companies and workplaces have realized significant reductions in health care costs as well as reduced absenteeism.
The MoveKeeper™ corporate challenge was developed by Triscope, a leader in corporate wellness programs, as a tool to help companies encourage active, healthy lifestyles for their employees. Research shows that companies, who emphasize wellness benefit from improved productivity, reduced health care costs and better employee satisfaction and retention. Since most people spend most of their waking hours on the job, the workplace is the right place to promote healthier habits.
What Triscope discovered in the process of rolling out their programs, and while employers valued keeping their workers healthy and fit, most didn’t have the budget to provide a comprehensive, effective wellness program. Consequently, Triscope set out to find a way to overcome this barrier by offering a free corporate challenge to eligible companies.
Here is what other participants have had to say about the Movekeeper.com platform:
"One of the best things about this program is the awareness it brings to you on your actual activity level each day. I always thought I moved way more than it turns out I actually did. I also enjoyed the team camaraderie and friendly competitiveness it offered." --Du Pont employee
"I loved walking with a goal in mind. Tracking where we were on the map was fun and the challenge was to keep up with, or get ahead, of the rabbit! I never thought I could achieve the goal of walking at least 10,000 steps a day, but I did." --Santee Cooper employee
"I always do better when it is a competition and this forced me to meet my goals to ensure I did not let my teammates down. I loved it!"--Santee Cooper employee
