If I owned my own company

and I wanted to build a healthy happy organization I would buy everyone FitBits. Set it up like a friendly competition and perhaps occasional awards. No need to make it big.

So let’s say you have 30 people in your company. It will cost you $3000.00 for the FitBits and then give away like $50.00 a month or something. That’s nothing compared to the benefit you will get with people trying to be healthier and the bond people will get from participating in something all together. Of course you can’t force people to participate, you need them to want to.

Even the currently active people will benefit from the camaraderie and the reminder to be active.

I have a whole plan in my head for doing monthly step competitions and prizes. You could buy little stepper machines and keep them in your conference rooms. You know the really small ones that are really only two little foot pedals that go up and down.

Some companies offer health incentives, like health clubs or such. I think the FitBit would be a great addition to that since they already have the website built and it allows you to add “friends”.



I wrote this as private on March 5. Today one of the guys at work bought a FitBit. It made me smile so i came over to update this to public and change the date.
