Wellbeing activities

‘Chicago Stroll’ Virtual RaceJoin Reward Gateway's MoveSpring virtual race for the SHRM conference in Chicago!

Do you ever get back to your hotel after a long conference day and say, “Wow! Look how much I walked today!”?

We’ll be hosting a virtual race throughout SHRM conference on our wellbeing app, MoveSpring, to encourage consistent, healthy movement – and drum up a little friendly competition while we’re at it. Come by booth 432 to check out the prizes for our top three challenge steppers!

How does a virtual race work?

We’re so glad you asked. All participating steppers work together to achieve the distance goal and cross the finish line. As various distance milestones are reached (collectively), participants will receive an update with some fun information and content about the city of Chicago, along with some suggestions for non-conference activities you could check out while in the city. Featuring the famous “rat hole” (if you know, you know), Soldier Field, Millennium Park and more, the Chicago Stroll virtual race not only gamifies the walking you’ll already do, it also builds community and camaraderie!

‘Conference Connections’ personal challenge

Conferences are the place to be when it comes to professional networking. To participate in this challenge, simply open the app to self-report your first new connection each day! At the end of the conference, we’ll hold a raffle among our top participants – check out our prizes at the booth!

New groundbreaking research

Reward Gateway | Edenred has known for years that employee engagement has a tangible effect on business performance, but the connection isn’t as clear for those who don’t do it every day. Our new report, Employee Engagement: An Economic Value Study, features groundbreaking new research gathered from over 300 organizations around the world to assess the connections between benefits packages and employee engagement. 

Interested to find out how your organization compares to its peers? Follow the survey link in the report to take it for your own organization – if you leave your name, we’ll send you personalized results and schedule time to walk through them with you!

Discover the direct correlation between employee enagement and business  success and identify the key HR levers and solutions that drive this growth. Read Report

Plus, we’ll be releasing a brand new report on the first day of the conference about the vital role that recognition plays in wellbeing, and how both contribute to a healthy culture of appreciation within an organization. Find the download code at our booth and make sure to download your copy!
