How Much is Ineffective Corporate Wellness Costing You?

Most businesses struggle to get their employees to engage with their corporate wellness programs. When your wellness initiatives don’t engage…

  • Employees stop participating in your wellness programs part way through
  • Your corporate wellness ROI falls flat
  • Employees check out on company culture, vision and goals
  • Nobody signs up for your events
  • Employees get bored and turnover increases
  • You spend a fortune on healthcare costs that keep rising every ear
  • Employees stop participating in your wellness programs part way through
  • Your wellness ROI falls flat
  • Employees check out on company culture, vision and goals
  • Nobody signs up for your events
  • Employees get bored and turnover increases
  • You spend a fortune on healthcare costs that keep rising every ear

Corporate wellness should be engaging and it should work, but most companies don’t know how to drive sustained engagement. Instead, they waste money on corporate wellness programs that only get a fraction of employees involved and then fail to maintain interest for the few who do. When you use A Step Ahead, you’ll get more employees to participate and stay engaged, resulting in a healthier, more engaged workforce that costs less to insure.

Sign up for A Step Ahead and you’ll finally get the corporate wellness engagement you’ve been looking for.

Why most walking challenges fail to maintain participation

Why Other Corporate Walking Challenges Crash and Burn

Does this sound familiar?

You’ve signed your company up for a “gamified” health challenge. Expectations are high. However, fewer employees register than you’d have hoped, and engagement takes a huge plunge after the first two weeks. Only a fraction of the employees you paid for are actually participating by the end, and the whole thing feels like a lot of work for underwhelming results.

Traditional walking challenges are designed by corporate wellness professionals who may know a lot about biometric screenings and gym classes, but nothing about the psychology of engagement.

The word “gamification” has taken root in recent years, but it’s a just a marketing buzzword. Gamification refers to adding superficial elements common in games, like badges, achievements and leaderboards, to non-game experiences. But the problem is that the real engagement in games doesn’t come from those superficial elements, it comes from the underlying game design and feedback loops.

That’s why other walking challenges can’t match our engagement. They were designed as wellness challenges, not games. We took the opposite approach and started with a game, and the results consistently break records.

Why A Step Ahead is Different

A Step Ahead is the result of video game designers looking at corporate wellness and saying, “If we were going to design a corporate wellness product, what would it look like?”

Our hypothesis was that if we could make physical activity as entertaining as the shows and games that people engage with in their spare time, we could “trick” the brain into prioritizing physical activity comparably to other entertainment products.

We approached the design from the standpoint of creating a team-based game where progress is derived from real-world activity, not from trying to layer game elements on top of a clinical program.

The results exceeded our expectations. We regularly set new participation records for our clients, the engagement sustains across entire challenges, and there’s an even engagement distribution across gender and age groups, even the hard-to-reach 40-59 age range.
