Challenges & Events

ConXus Connection delivers localized workplace challenges and events designed to help participants motivate, encourage, and challenge each other to meet health goals and earn rewards.


Each challenge focuses on one small behavior change. Repeating the same simple daily action, such as adding more steps or eating extra vegetables, for a number of weeks develops the healthy habit.

Alerts and reminders trigger action, peer groups provide support, while team leader boards, interactive maps, and progress charts enhance motivation.

The following wellness challenges are available:

Challenges can be deployed to a wellness program as one of the following types. Not all options are available for each challenge.

Personal challenges allow participants to enroll in at any time, based on their personal goals.

Corporate challenges have a fixed start date and duration, and can be deployed as:

  • Individual– where participants work individually to reach milestones
  • Team– where participants form teams and work together to reach milestones

Personal and individual challenges support peer groups, allowing participants to share progress with friends.

Participants can easily track progress manually within the Wellness & Benefits Hub. For activity challenges, data may be autologged from a range of popular fitness devices and activity trackers.

ConXus XP data can be autologged from a range of popular fitness devices and activity trackers

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.


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.
