“Everything about it was fantastic. Everything was so easy and smooth. A ton of people want us to do another one.
We had people on our teams meeting before work to walk for an hour, and they’re still currently doing that and this is months and months after the challenge is over. People still walk in the halls, but they’re also still doing those things that they weren’t doing beforehand.
It’s economical and easy to use. And so if it’s economical and easy to use then, why wouldn’t you? It’s a no-brainer. It’s easy to implement. All of us wellness coordinators never have enough time or enough money for anything, so it’s something you can set some funds aside for and something you don’t need to be on top of every second of every day, and it’s nice that it kind of runs itself.”

“When the challenges end, I get constant inquiries about when the next one will start. It has really enhanced the employee comaraderie.”

It has really enhanced the employee camaraderie. Players are assigned to teams with 4-5 coworkers. The chat feature gets them to talk to each other. In a lot of instances, it is coworkers that don’t normally communicate. So I think it has caused a great morale builder. Our leaders have been an active part of the competitions so they get to interact with employees they may not usually have the chance to.
In the office, people have purchased bikes for under their desks. Employees will get up with coworkers and go out to walk around for 10 minutes or so a couple times a day.
Our drivers are getting out of the trucks during down times to walk the jobsite or just to move instead of sitting in truck waiting.
There are multiple reasons that Fix Health has been a huge success at Chaney Enterprises.”

“The success of this program has been like no other.”
“I have been involved with group health plans for many years. As the Vice President of Health Risk Management and a Registered Nurse, I am concerned about members with chronic and developing chronic diseases.
Obesity runs rampant in our groups. Lack of exercise is a major problem. When I was looking for a walking program, I ran across A Step Ahead. At first I was skeptical but after a trial with a large think tank, a very difficult client, I was sold.
Not only were members “moving” but they were also exercising more. And what I didn’t count on was the mental health aspect. Employees were chatting with each other and smiling. No one wanted to be caught by the zombies! The success of this program has been like no other. Since the trial, I have implemented in many other groups and never have I had a group that didn’t like it! I highly recommend.”
Danielle Herndon, Vice President of Health Risk Management
