Thanks to Efectio, at the end of 2018, employees felt not only the festive atmosphere but also the spirit of the competition in the company. “Bite’s” 30-day challenge allowed to revive company values, in an unusual way, with both individual and team tasks. 291 enthusiastic employees registered for the challenge, and the employees earned a place at the top of the leaderboard with their persistent work and special talents. Both friendly persuasion and bribery methods were used to obtain “likes” for the photos. In the individual evaluation, the winner with 5225 points admitted that this challenge is, indeed, appropriate for this word because, in order to maintain enthusiasm and a place in the leadership position until the very end, he had to fight with himself:
“This 30-day adventure definitely brought our team together and made us think about the things that are usually passed.”– winner of the “Bite” challenge.
The winning team, with 4723 points earned, also acknowledged that by participating in this challenge, the team has become more cohesive, as the whole month has been spent in correspondence, negotiations around tasks, as well as together organized walks and exercises to complete them:
“As a team, we looked after each other and no day went by without completing the task,” says the participant, adding that their team faced various challenges. The biggest of them was completing tasks on weekends. In turn, the most memorable for the whole team is the organized walk to the “Sky” supermarket to reach the number of steps set per day.
“Effective! That’s how we can describe the “Bite’s” month of Efectio challenge in one word. With tasks and challenges in line with our company’s values, we inspired each other for both healthier and more socially responsible daily work and leisure activities. Together we can do more!”– Ance Kovale, “Bite” challenge manager.
