Virginia Commerce Bank employees recently stepped up their game by completing a company-wide walking program that encouraged fitness and overall wellness. The 12-week fitness program, named “Stepitup,” utilized pedometers to track employees’ steps and offered incentives for participation and for meeting minimum walking goals.
Beginning in September, 48 teams comprised of 231 employees (over 72% of the organization) began logging daily steps with a minimum goal of 5,500 steps per day, increasing to 8,500 steps per day by the end of the program. At the end of each four-week session, the step goal increased and prizes were awarded to individual participants who met the minimum step goal, while teams were ranked by the total number of steps they collectively tallied.
