The pandemic brought with it a new way of working, which was highlighted during Worcestershire County Council’s mid-year reviews. Their newly formed remote and hybrid teams needed investment into employee health and wellbeing as well as a way to reconnect their teams.
With the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year, WCC wanted to combine employee wellbeing and team building through fundraising to motivate and encourage teams across the business to join in.
The Economic Growth and Investment team were given the challenge to find a solution to get the WCC workforce active whilst reconnecting hybrid and remote teams through fundraising and fitness.
How We Helped
Following consultations with WellGiving, Worcestershire County Council took on a 5-month fitness challenge to improve staff wellbeing while raising money for an initiative in honour of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year.
WellGiving’s platform would provide WCC with a way to combine both getting moving and fundraising to enable them to make a positive impact on their community.
It was seen that the platform would give the teams the motivation to reach their fitness and fundraising goals, whilst bringing the teams together in a way that they didn’t think was initially possible.
WCC’s target is to achieve a combined total of 3900 miles in time for the Jubilee celebrations on June 3rd.
In just three months of starting the challenge, the team had clocked up 24,000 minutes of exercise across a staggering 547 activities!
“The platform has been instrumental in keeping the momentum of the challenge going, allowing us to share updates and pictures of our progress with each other and keep on top of our fundraising goals. I am incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved so far and grateful for the support WellGiving has offered us every step of the way!”
