Create Your Own Workplace Health Challenge!


How does it work?

The Pacific Blue Cross Health Challenge platform is designed so our Plan Sponsors can run Workplace Health Challenges for their employees to encourage healthier lifestyle. All you have to do is promote the Challenge to your employees while the contest is running. We have pre-designed posters, email content and digital assets that can be co-branded for sharing throughout your workplace(s).


How can I encourage participation?

If your organization wants to amp up it’s Workplace Health Challenge offer a prize or prizes for your employees. Pacific Blue Cross will draw winners from those who enter using your Workplace Health Challenge unique identifier. Plus, everyone that makes a healthy resolution through the Pacific Blue Cross Health Challenge will be entered to win the grand prizes of $2,020 in health cash.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should my organization share this with our plan members?

Is there any cost for our organization to participate?

Pacific Blue Cross will reimburse Health Cash winners for products or services tied to improving their health, like gym memberships, new bikes or a smoothie maker. Winners send their receipts directly to us and we reimburse them with a cheque.
