Announcing the Workplace Wellness Winning Concepts

Check out the interactive Workplace Wellness Challenge Collaboration Map

In mid-November we asked an important and new question of our global community: 

How might we create healthy communities within and beyond the workplace?

In partnership with Bupa, a leading healthcare provider, our Workplace Wellness Challenge asked each of us to consider what health means to us, and to identify how to enhance our workplace & employees wellness.

Over the course of the last four months, we inspired one another through stories and insights, and collaborated together to design concepts that enhance workplace wellness. Most recently, our global community worked together on refining and evaluating our top concepts.

This week the OpenIDEO team met with our challenge sponsors at Bupa to review all of your efforts and choose the Winning Concepts. We examined the community's Evaluation scores and considered which concepts had grown and evolved the most during the Refinement phase.

Taking all of those factors and inputs into account, our challenge team identified 10 Winning Concepts that we felt not only answered the challenge question, but also reflected our sponsor's objectives going forward. 

While our congratulations go to the authors of the 10 Winning Concepts, as always on OpenIDEO the final winners reflect the collective contributions that each of you made through your comments, builds and feedback. So with that we want to cheer on our entire community for joining this important, collaborative and inspiring conversation! Check out this challenge's Collaboration Map to see how each of our efforts informed the Winning Concepts.

And now it's time to head over to our Winning Concepts phase to share in the celebration of our collaborative efforts to design better, together!

Honestly, I like the question that how might we create healthy communities within and beyond the workplace? I think it is very important to create healthy communities within the workplace. This is because not only could benefit each employee but also could enhance the development of the company in the future.

Standing workstations would alleviate a big chunk of the problem.
