What our clients say
Coca-Cola European Partners
“Mid April, we launched our ‘Moving Together, even apart” challenge, having a target, after six weeks, of doing one tour around the world with the total distance made by our colleagues, either by walking, running or cycling. An even more important objective however was to create an initiative to stimulate sense of belonging and connection. Looking at the number of team members that participated and the enthousiastic testimonials on our internal communication platform, we are happy to notice we succeeded in that mission. And obviously, we are very happy we achieved to make the tour around the world twice, and linked to this result, we doubled our donation to the Special Olympics Play Unified program.”
An Vermeulen – VP & Country Director, Belux
“I’m pleased that together with the Proximus Consumer BU we launched during the month of March the Energy Boost Challenge. What a great success: 631 team members participated in 128 teams, and 100 teams succeeded in the challenge to move minimum 2021 minutes in 4 weeks’ time (walk, run, cycle). This challenge clearly stimulated our people to work on their mental and physical health, and stimulated new habits like walking meetings. It also generated a nice dynamic in the teams who shared their results and anecdotes. “
Jim Casteele – Chief Consumer Market Officer and Member of the Executive Committee at Proximus
“During the Baloise ‘Warmste Week’ we started the KeepMoving initiative. We originally opted for a target of 2500 km. Thanks to the platform, we could follow everything live and we soon knew that we were going to reach the milestone of 2500 km together. At the end of the ride we even achieved the intended goal 4 times. There was a lot of walking, cycling and walking, all for a good cause.”
Yente Notteboom – Project Coordinator at B-Tonic By Baloise Insurance
Gilead Sciences Belgium
“Gilead Sciences Belgium took part in the Lignaverda challenge thanks to the collaboration of Energy Lab with Entrepreneurs without Frontiers and the KeepMoving platform was a great tool during the entire time. Our aim was to move 3.600 km in 4 weeks to plant 3.600 trees against the climate change and to support the local communities in Africa. After 2 weeks’ time we already reached this milestone and eventually ended the challenge with more than 8.800 km of cycling/walking/swimming/running, resulting in 18 hectares of new forest being planted. This was a great experience, not only for the team but also for a great purpose!”
Wim Eeraerts – General Manager at Gilead Sciences Belgium
“Thanks to the Marathon Challenge, we not only got the whole company running and took steps during the lockdown, but we also attached an ecological goal to it. A tree was planted for every marathon achieved! Not only did people enjoy the challenge, but they also contributed to the environment!”
Valérie EVRARD – HR Director Novo Nordisk
“During one of the most challenging years, KeepMoving was a partner by supporting us on finding a way to mitigate physical distance. Through the Million Steps Challenge we reinforced bonds, we shared experiences, we created new habits, we felt together again, stimulating our sense of belonging. The Step Challenge was not only made of physical benefits – it was mainly made of psychological ones. Based on the feedback received from our employees this was absolutely a successful initiative.“
Sofia Maia – Head of Quality and Regulatory Affairs at Siemens Healthineers
“We renamed the Fit for Charity Challenge our own Henkel (s) miles where everyone collected as many kilometers as possible while running and walking. During the cold and dark winter months, this was the ideal way to encourage our employees to exercise more, while at the same time raising money for a good cause.”
Jente Van Dorien – HR Business partner at Henkel
“The Millionaire Challenge has provided connection and fun in a period when working from home was the norm. We have got to know each other better, have become more sporty and have received an energy boost as a company.”
Charlotte Pelssers – MarCom Manager Hamilton Bright
“Attentia launched the Fit for Trees Challenge! We challenged our employees to run, walk or cycle 70,000 km together. If they succeeded, Attentia committed to plant a forest of 1 hectare in Belgium. In this way, we stimulated our employees to exercise more, we also boosted commitment and team spirit and we worked together towards a more sustainable world! 2 Weeks before the end date, we already reached our target and ended the challenge with 100,000 km on the counter. So the Attentia forest is in the making!
Thanks to the KeepMoving platform, the activities of the more than 400 participants were well recorded and everyone was able to follow the evolution. A fast and efficient service desk was always at hand to answer the questions of staff members and, as a finishing touch, keepMoving provides a handy dashboard with fun facts. Highly recommended!”
Tess Willems – Internal Communication Expert at Attentia
