The Workplace Challenge

a fun opportunity to team up with colleagues to improve your fitness and achieve personal health goals

Last summer, a craze swept the LSE campus. Staff wore grooves into the pathways of Lincolns’ Inn Fields, and a thriving black market for working pedometers appeared overnight. "Steps" was the word on everybody's lips.

That time is here again.

Last year we held our very first LSE staff Get Active Festival! This year we will be doing it all again including participating in the Workplace Challenge.

Whatever your current activity level, the Workplace Challenge offers a fun opportunity to team up with colleagues to improve your fitness and achieve personal health goals, whilst engaging in a bit of healthy competition with your colleagues.

What is the workplace challenge?

The Workplace Challenge is a physical activity initiative designed to encourage physical activity and sport within an organisation. 

All you need to do is create an account with your LSE email address, and start logging your walking, running, cycling, swimming, dancing or gardening.

In the spirit of friendly competition, you record your activity online using your own fitbit, pedometer or phone app.

Signing up to LSE's summer activity challenge

Just go to LSE’s ‘Get Active’ Festival challenge to get involved. If you’ve not previously signed up to Workplace Challenge, you’ll just need to take a moment to create an account using your work email address and answer a few quick questions about yourself and your current levels of activity. As soon as you’ve signed up, you can start logging your activity. 

The challenge runs from the 9th July to the 17th August 2018. Remember, there some great prizes up for grabs for the best performing teams, so don’t delay – join today and start climbing that leaderboard!
