Take the STEPtember Challenge to the next level at your worksite with these complementary tools:
Email Signature - Promote the challenge by adding this text to your email signature.
Live Fitness Classes - Share our live digital fitness calendar to get your employees moving during the workday.
Stair Prompts - Replacing an elevator ride with an occasional trek up the stairs is a great way to sneak in extra steps during the workday! Encourage employees to take the stairs during STEPtember and beyond by hanging these stair prompts (left, right, forward) throughout your building. (Be sure to get clearance from your agency leadership and building facilities manager before doing so.)
Tips Sheets – Share the following tip sheets to help employees add more steps in to their day. This can be helpful for those new to walking challenges, or to share with your team to boost your step count.
