Many options exist for carrying out an employee weight loss challenge, and not all are created equally. incentaHEALTH stresses the importance and reliability of corporate weight loss challenges that utilize tracking, whether by a HEALTHspot® kiosk, or other monitored means. Self-reported data is a poor way to judge the weight loss of a participant in a program, as the results can often be biased. Most people are optimistically a bit taller and thinner on their driver’s license than they are in the real world! Low cost technology exists today to effortlessly track true results of your corporate wellness program.
Employee weight loss challenges are growing in popularity, attracting many people who desire to get (and stay) healthy. However a lot of people abandon individual weight loss attempts after one unsuccessful weigh in. Being part of a larger team-based weight loss competition can provide that extra dose of accountability needed to stay on track. And having a private system to track progress, such as the HEALTHspot kiosk, can provide each participant with their own private dashboard of information to track their progress and see that their long range commitment to changing their nutrition and exercise habits is actually delivering long term results.
The incentaHEALTH HEALTHspot® kiosk is the perfect choice for your corporate weight loss challenge, as it provides un-biased and reliable information that truly shows how much progress is being made within the competition. Not only do these challenges help people get healthier, but also reduce health care costs for your entire company! If you’re planning a corporate weight loss challenge, stop relying on self-reported data and try the HEALTHspot® kiosk!
