Sharp Healthcare uses MoveSpring to create an inclusive, ongoing wellness program for employees.
Health and well-being are at the very core of Sharp Healthcare’s mission. That’s why they created the Sharp Move More program that rewards employees for consistent physical activity. Sharp had initially used Fitbit to track activity and distribute incentives. However, they found Fitbit to be limiting. Engagement was low since only Fitbit users could participate. Additionally, the challenge options were inflexible and offered little data reporting.
Key Features Used
Monthly Streak Challenges
Sharp set up a 5,000 steps/day streak challenge that resets monthly. Prizes were awarded via lottery for those who average at least 5,000 steps/day throughout the month. This mode made it easy for users to track their reward eligibility.
With a leaderboard that resets monthly, every person has an opportunity to move up in ranking each month. This setup was perfect for a highly competitive bunch that loves a chance at redemption.
Every day, users posted photos of where they walked. Users also posted motivational memes, food photos, and plans to meet up for group fitness.
Sharp admins relied heavily on reporting to determine who was eligible for each tier of rewards, starting at 5,000 steps per day to 10,000 steps per day. MoveSpring’s reporting allowed the admins to easily see daily step averages by user.
The MoveSpring customer success team played a key role in helping Sharp create a program that met their rewards strategy and ensured an engaging user experience for their employees.
As a result, Sharp saw its highest program participation to date. Admins were able to save time on rewards administration and kept ongoing challenge planning simple with this monthly recurring challenge formula.
