In our latest health and wellbeing case study, learn how Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust motivated its workforce to lose a staggering 1,000 kg in weight.
To help raise awareness of health and wellbeing to staff the trust took part in the Global Corporate Challenge (GCC). The challenge was to take at minimum of 10,000 steps a day over a 100 day period.
From May to September, 72 teams of employees took on the challenge, generating an average step count of 14,500. This placed the trust as the fourth highest health care performer, in the challenge, worldwide. Due to its success both in achieving its health and wellbeing aims and staff engagement outcomes, the trust is currently planning to repeat the challenge.
