Welcome to our Round The World Challenge!
After an unprecedented 18 months due to the Coronavirus pandemic, in keeping with our brand proposition - It's what we bring together, that sets us apart, we knew that we would need to create something that would bring our people back together.
As part of our wider Back:Better campaign - which itself is designed to encompass projects, activities, innovation and events, we knew we needed a major firmwide activity that would foster our employee engagement.
So, starting on 19th July 2021, we’re going to be circumnavigating a route around the globe - all 40,000 miles of it!
How it works
We're using an innovative online platform called Challenge Hound that will aggregate the activities undertaken by our people.
The flexibility of our challenge is what makes it so inclusive. Any activity that can be measured can be included, such as walking, hiking, running, cycling, swimming, rowing or even roller-blading, meaning it will appeal to people of all abilities.
Literally every step will count.
We also want to give our people an overarching challenge that will incentivise a range activities that our people, contacts and clients can get involved in together across our business. But the challenge also has several other important objectives:
- It will promote Health and Wellbeing by encouraging our people to get walking, running, cycling, rowing, swimming or any other activities that can be measured
- It will generate activities and fundraising for our communities as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility and our new, ongoing commitment to being a responsible business as a member of Business In The Community
- We will be able to involved our clients, contacts and intermediaries who might get involved in our challenge, cementing our relationship with them.
- We will be able to foster better relations with fellow Kreston firms that we virtually visit along the way.
