AmCham and Virgin Pulse bring you the 10.000 steps challenge in May 2017

After almost 50 AmCham member companies successfully took part in the Global Corporate Challenge (GCC) since late 2015, the world’s biggest and most successful health initiative, we are proud to give you again the opportunity to join the programme in 2017! Last year, GCC has officially rebranded to Virgin Pulse and the 2017 programme will be known as the Virgin Pulse Global Challenge (https://globalchallenge.virginpulse.com) and, as always, will be introducing new features that will continue to help organisations around the world build a healthier and happier workforce.

 In 2015 AmCham’s Healthy Nation Policy Task Force – together with the AmCham Board – decided to launch a new global program, focusing on the health awareness and fitness of the 160,000 colleagues employed by our member companies. In launching this program, we sought out a partner with proven background and know-how to team up with, and found Virgin Pulse, the world’s leading global corporate health provider.

 The Virgin Pulse Global Challenge is a complete turnkey solution which can be rolled out in days. In teams of 7, employees take on 60,000 teams from more than 1,500 organisations in the ultimate destination challenge. For the 100-day event and beyond, your employees will build sustainable habits around increased activity, improved nutrition, sleep and psychological wellbeing.

By joining the challenge, not only will your employees have the opportunity to change their lifestyle, moreover they will have the possibility to be a part of a global movement. They will set on this journey in the teams of seven and will enjoy a healthy competition with other companies within AmCham Hungary as well as around the world.

Our goal is to engage even more AmCham member companies for a healthier lifestyle in 2017!
