The Basics of HeiaHeia Challenges
A 4-12 week community target where teams and individuals progress towards a common goal with wellbeing actions, unlocking fun, informative and/or rewarding milestones along the way.
Participants log their activities into their HeiaHeia account (or automatically import from their smart device). The progress of the challenge is tracked in the company's closed HeiaHeia community.

FAQ: Can we have our departments, units or teams as players?
Challenges can be organised at different levels of the organisation. Set up a challenge for your entire global organisation, with different countries or departments challenging each other, or encourage smaller teams to come together and cheer each other on to achieve a common goal. Challenges can also be organised for individuals to try to be the first to reach the finish line.

FAQ: What do we measure in the challenge?
It's up to you! You can choose the unit of measurement, e.g:
- Wellbeing score, e.g. 5000 steps/day = 2 points, enough sleep = 1 points
- Minutes or hours, e.g. collect 30 minutes of activity per day
- Steps, e.g. which team collects the most steps during the challenge
- Kilometres/miles, e.g. how fast can your organisation reach the moon?
- Amount of sports types, e.g. who can bring most variety to their training?
- Micro-actions, such as cheering on a friend or drinking enough water
