June 21, 2023, Atlanta, Ga. – Corporate Health Partners, an EHG member company, once again has hosted its annual City Challenge. A congratulations is due to all the Georgia cities who participated this year and helped their employee populations adopt new habits and behaviors as we all move towards a healthier culture. Participating client-cities were invited to compete against one another in this friendly battle for the coveted City Challenge Trophy in addition to individual employee rewards.
Participating cities included:
This year, 8 municipalities participated and competed for the highest average team step count, 5K bonus points, as well as participation percentages to build up points that all roll up into a grand prize. The goal of the City Challenge is to create lasting change among all participants and help foster a culture of wellness throughout the organization as we have fun together.
Team Suwanee has claimed first place after coming in second last year. While not the leader in all categories, Team Suwanee was able to accumulate the highest score through their diversity of efforts and teamwork. Their culture models exactly what the CHP team champions; many smaller changes are the way to see the greatest impact.
It’s rewarding for the EHG/CHP team to see the enthusiasm that stems from the City Challenge each year. Once again, this year’s levels of enthusiasm, engagement, participation, and even average step count increased. This is an event that not only encourages health awareness and increased activity but also pride in one’s city.
The “team spirit” is a definite plus of the challenge that can never be measured on a leaderboard, but anyone that participates in the challenge is aware of its impact. You know it is a good challenge when the most common question at its end is, “When is the next one?“
- This was the highest participation so far.
- 85% of all participants met the 3,500/steps-per-day target.
- 245 participants earned bonus points for completing a 5K.
- The group accumulated almost 150 million steps, averaging 7,606 participant steps per day.
- For scale, those steps are equivalent to traveling around the world 3 times.
In addition to the cities who competed, we’d like to thank CHP’s Division Director Tiffany Tian, Platform Support Specialists Sarah Chapman and Susie O’Brian, and the CHP Program Managers who helped make this possible. A special thanks to Dustin Kell who served as the overall coordinator for the City Challenge this year. Thank you to the team for bringing their passion and energy to CHP every day!
