Walkingspree helps companies control health care costs by getting their employees moving. It is our use of technology and success with employee engagement that sets us apart. Our physical activity wellness program achieves at least 50 percent sign-up and high year-over-year-retention rates – about 70 percent. The Walkingspree advanced wellness program is a multi-device platform that uses activity trackers to track and record physical activity, and an active social network to keep members motivated and engaged.
With 75 percent of all health care claims related to preventable chronic disease and lifestyle choices, walking is a proven solution. By applying modern technology to the simple concept of walking, we have turned that concept in a proven wellness program. The results are healthier employees and a positive return on investment for clients.
I have nothing but the highest praise for this program. It's the best workplace fitness program I've ever seen. It's so well thought out and nicely done, it's darn near perfect. I thought I would see enthusiasm for the program decline a few months after we got the pedometers, but it has held steady, and even grown over time. The daily targets and friendly competition have done more to motivate me than anything before. Thank you very much for providing this program. It's been life-changing.-
My pedometer keeps me going!! All my family and friends know that I need to get my 10,000 each day and often ask me how far I am along at different points in the day. I love that such a simple tool is a simple way for me to take control of my own health!!Jane -
Walkingspree has been an excellent place to work hard, find support, and have a kickin time!! Each time I log in I find more tools for me to succeed. I love the virtual walks and the motivation they give me. I can monitor my successes (and setbacks). I feel empowered with all the people I get in contact with.Brian -
My BP was 132/94, my cholesterol and blood sugar numbers were creeping up and my doctor said he would increase my medications if I didn’t lose weight. I was so glad when SKF started the Walkingspree program. It gave me the jump start I needed. At the doctor’s this week my BP was 119/74! My cholesterol is normal, my blood sugar has been 92-104 for the last two months, and my A1T number is now 5.7.SKF Employee -
