As the workplace captain, you have access to special tools on the Challenge website to help you get as many people as you can to take part in the Challenge. The higher the participation rate, the higher up the leader board you get.
Here are some things you can do
Create and approve teams - you or anyone else in your workplace can register a team. Teams are departments or sub-groups that can help create friendly competition within your organisation. As captain, you need to approve teams that others create.Find out how below.
Spread the word - download posters, flyers and banners from the Spread the Word tab in the grey bar at the top of the page.
Invite others to take part - use the invite a friend tool to easily copy the Challenge link and send an invite out to your contacts.
Email them along the way - email your colleagues to encourage them to set up teams and log journeys. Your support with our help will inspire them to get involved.
Set targets - as the captain you can set journey targets on your workplaces homepage. You can also watch other workplaces to see how they are doing.
