Challenges & Events

Localized for your workplace, ConXus Connection helps participants motivate, encourage, and challenge each other to meet health goals and earn rewards.


Challenges can be delivered as a standalone or combined with other ConXus modules. Client configuration options determine the start date, duration, and incentive points available for a challenge when it is deployed to a group. A customizable toolkit of promotional materials includes poster templates, mailers, and a how-to guide for wellness coordinators. The following challenges are available:

Individual challenges may be run as corporate challenges, with a fixed start date and duration, or as personal challenges for participants to travel at their own pace.

Team challenges allow participants to form teams and work together to reach milestones. Individual and team progress charts, a league table, and blogs encourage healthy competition.

Participants may track challenge progress manually within the Wellness Portal. For activity challenges, data may be autologged from a range of popular fitness devices and activity trackers, including Fitbit, Garmin Connect, and Jawbone UP.*

Messages prompt participation and advancement in the challenge. As they reach each milestone, participants view health information, videos, and motivational tips to develop healthier habits.


Employer-defined health events or activities may occur throughout the year. They can include employer-sponsored activities like a wellness seminar and community programs like a walk/run or flu shot clinic.

Clients can maintain the list of available activities and configure events to:

  • Take place on a specific date or during a defined period
  • Allow completion by participant self-report or by an administrator
  • Deliver event information and communication materials
  • Define incentives awarded for completion of each event

Management Reporting

Client administrators run self-service reports showing participation and progress. Reports can be run by service level, date range, and employer group or subgroup.

*Supported fitness devices and activity trackers include the following: Fitbit, Fitbug, Garmin Connect,  Jawbone UP, Lumo, Microsoft Band, Misfit, Movable, Moves app, Pivotal Living, Sony Lifelog, Striiv, Withings, and Yoo.
