UK Council Stair Climbing Challenge

Kickstart the health of your local authority's workforce in 2017 by joining StepJockey's UK-wide stair climbing challenge.

The affordable initiative is a great way to encourage staff to stay healthy in the new year and has already succeeded in over 20 councils nationwide. Our 2016 challenges encouraged almost 2000 staff to take more than 9 million steps on their office stairs to boost workplace health.

Councils that sign up will be able to enter unlimited numbers of teams and employees into the challenge. Council employees who take part will be able to win £100s of fantastic prizes for participation in this health-enhancing workplace challenge.

How does the StepJockey challenge work?

This February we're bringing together councils to jointly burn the same number of calories as an Olympic athlete in our Office Games Challenge, while on their own office stairs. Our signs will point the way to the stairs, and staff can use the free StepJockey smartphone app to scan the signs to track their climbs.

Employees form teams, competing with other teams within your council to see who can burn the most calories on the stairs, while all council teams collaborate to reach the ultimate goal.

We'll give you all you need to make the Challenge a success, including:

  • Downloadable paper StepJockey Smart Signs for your stairwells
  • Access to a live online leaderboard where everybody involved will be able to see their team's progress
  • Internal comms calendar and assets to help promote the initiative
  • Motivational messages to inspire players and help them climb more

When and where is it taking place?

The UK-wide council stair climbing challenge will be happening in council offices around the country in February, June and October 2017. You'll need to book your council's place in the challenge by 30 November to ensure you're in the upcoming Challenge.
