When it comes to health, does senior leadership matter?

You know the answer. Yes!

Senior leadership is vital. You set the tone. You lead by example.

April’s Million Mile Month

The same is true for community leadership. In that spirit, HealthCode is honored to have the support of Mayor Steve Adler, Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt and Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell, Jr. for April’s Million Mile Month – a fun community-wide global challenge supporting healthier people, companies, and more connected communities.

Plus, we’re excited that employees from the City of Austin, Travis and Williamson Counties, Austin ISD, CapMetro, Keller Williams, American Campus Communities and many more are joining us in the community challenge to embrace healthy lifestyles.

Please see their community challenge, which supports employees locally and globally, full or part-time.

Kick off the New Year With Employee Activity Challenges that Work

If you have 5 employees or 50,000 employees, an attractive culture matters. You know your organization’s “culture” – including boasting a healthy workforce – plays a vital role in hiring and retaining excellent employees, especially for millennials.

Employee health activity challenges can play a positive role in establishing a culture that

  • communicates you care
  • connects employees
  • increases health and well-being
  • positively impacts the bottom line

But when it comes to employee activity challenges, does this sound familiar?

We struggle with what to offer. Unfortunately, challenge events seem to primarily bring out those who are already fit vs. engage those who most need it.

That is why HealthCode recommends designing employee activity challenges based on completing personal achievable mileage goals, versus who does the most. Let employees set their own goal based upon their capabilities.

For example, establish a challenge where employees who accomplish “X” miles receive special recognition. Recognize department(s) with the highest percentage of employees who achieve say 20 miles.

Design employee activity events to be simple, fun and inclusive for all employees; delivering metrics for recognition, evaluation and reporting.

Need some help?

HealthCode’s quarterly virtual activity events are turnkey, fun and simple to administer. Supporting employees locally and globally, full-time and part-time.

January’s iResolve.

iResolve. is underway. Yet with four weeks to go, there is still plenty of time to participate. Especially as participants can enter all activity accomplished as of January 1st, including their polar day swim.

Or start planning for April’s Million Mile Month.

Feel free to call with any questions and wishing you great success in 2019!

New Member Highlight: Zoho boosts businesses that are short on time and resources.

Whether you’re a solopreneur just getting started or have a business further down the road, every business is different. But there is something most businesses have in common: They need easy to use software that helps streamline processes and efficiently grow organizations. The truth is, even if you have the best team, everything can break down if you don’t have the right framework to enable success. And as a small business, it’s hard to find time to spend working on your company, rather than in it.

That’s where Zoho comes in. Zoho One can help you sell exceptionally and grow beyond bounds with a fully-integrated suite of 40+ business apps to do everything your organization needs. And we mean everything: Zoho One helps you market, sell, support, account, collaborate, analyze, and more with apps that are built to work together, so you don’t have to worry about costly third-party integrations. With increased communication and organizational transparency, you’ll have way more time to spend on the things you care about.  

Zoho started as a small business 20+ years ago—now, they’re reaching out to help small businesses in Austin with a free seminar on basics and best practices for businesses, and how Zoho can help. They’ll also be going over how a complete view of your business, with apps that effortlessly integrate, can enhance your productivity, make more of your customers happy, and help you effectively collaborate with staff, partners, and investors. 

So what’s the downside? There’s none, except that spots are filling up quick and we want to promise you a seat for a full (and free!) day of learningClick here to register nowZoho will cover the rest with plenty of food, drinks, and caffeine to get you through a busy day of learning and fun. Meeting your business goals is just a seminar away. Hope to see you there!
