Improving workplace wellness
Better energy levels and alertness with SKF
Aiming for sustainable healthy habits
The Finnish team was looking for a workplace wellbeing programme that would inspire both intermitted and regular exercises. It was important to find an easy solution to track physical activity as well as highlighting holistic wellbeing.
Hintsa and SKF began their successful partnership in the spring of 2015. The goal was to exercise the equivalent of a global tour of SKF sites. Participants were able to track personal activity using HeiaHeia and Polar’s high-quality fitness trackers and sports watches.
Together around the world
The year-long wellness program started with an inspirational kick-off session for the entire Finnish staff and included several digital campaigns and team challenges. The primary target was to exercise the equivalent of a global tour of all SKF sites.
Employees could add to the distance travelled by logging in their personal activities; everything counted from walking the dog to training for a triathlon. After the first challenge, participants were rewarded with Polar’s latest fitness trackers. As an additional incentive, the company made donations to charity for all targets that were met. Staff were also encouraged to use the service beyond the set challenges, with numerous training programmes available, ranging from sports and activities to programmes that promote healthy rest and recovery patterns.
