What is a weightloss challenge at the corporate workplace?
Since a healthy workplace attracts healthy employees, there can be many ways to regulate employees’ health, but the most interactive one is a corporate weightloss challenge. It can be considered a challenge where the employees set personal goals but work collectively to achieve those targets, just like they work for all the other tasks. It instigates the value of collective working and helps some employees who have not been able to lose weight. They can work better towards losing weight when they consider it a workplace task and no longer associate it with their progress. It helps them realize that they have to work hard no matter what, as they are also driven by peer pressure.
People know that they can easily work towards a weight loss program by themselves but making it a collective target in the workspace can be very beneficial for the mental and physical health of the workers. It provides some of them the necessary push needed to achieve a weight that is more under control and within the acceptable range. Also, it is inevitable to gain weight when the people working in corporate workspaces are very busy most of the time.
