Our Take on Mobile Working

This May employees of Compu b teamed up with our sister companies NuCONNECT Ltd (Bang & Olufsen) and Juku Gear to participate in a new challenge introduced as part of the group employee wellbeing programme. Using the Apple Watch and third party app Challenges, Close the Rings pits teams of 4 against each other to track participant’s movement and exercise over the course of the challenge. The more active the individual is, the more points they accumulate for his/her team.

The challenge proved to be a great success, with 24 players taking more than 4.6 million steps and walking 4,022km between them over 24 days! The teams even found creative ways to clock up their points during the day and we saw a sharp increase in mobile meetings happening via walks around the business park.

Close the Rings proved to be an excellent way to encourage communication and friendly competition between all sections of our company and across the group. We’d recommend you have a go and are looking forward to round two starting in a couple of weeks!
