Realityworks finishes 3rd among small businesses in nationwide physical activity challenge

EAU CLAIRE, Wis., July 13, 2016 – Realityworks has concluded participation the Wellness Council of America’s On the Move Company Challenge, a corporate health initiative to combat physical inactivity and initiate behavior change. Eighty-four companies representing almost 80,000 employees competed to create a more thriving place to work, increase employee energy, improve employee comradery and earn designation as one of America’s Top 100 most active companies. Realityworks finished third among 26 other organizations in the Small Business category.

Designed to get employees across the country “on the move,” this 12-week online challenge engaged employees with educational resources, behavior change incentives, social support and of course, movement. Employees tracked their activity types, duration and intensity to work toward 100 “move points” each day. Taking in metrics like intensity and activity type, the On the Move algorithm allowed participating organizations to encourage employees to truly move when they wanted, how they wanted and how much they wanted to reap all the rewards of an active lifestyle.

By participating in the On the Move national challenge, organizations around the country took a stand for more movement and improved cultures of wellbeing for their employees. The challenge has been shown to cut sedentary behavior in half and revolutionize worksites for physical activity — over 80 percent of employees who complete the challenge say they will continue to be active in the long term.

Other local participants included the Stanley-Boyd School District, which finished second in the Small Business category, and Group Health Cooperative of Eau Claire, which finished first in the Enterprise Business category.
