Wellshift and the Austin Coding Academy are teaming up to launch the Core Culture wellness challenge, a four week online challenge aimed at developing and elevating the culture within technology-driven companies. This is a game changer in corporate wellness industry due to it's ability to generate visible and measurable culture change within teams. Specific outcomes include increased team loyalty and company evangelism as well as the integration of daily exercises that improve the detrimental effects of high stress, low movement work environments.
"According to Forbes, 88% of millenials seek “work life integration” which is not the same as work life balance, since work and life now blend together inextricably."
Times of corporations not taking interest in or dedicating resources to employee wellness are a thing of the past. As emerging millenials begin to integrate into the workforce, companies are learning that what used to be important to their employees has greatly changed. According to Forbes 88% of millenials seek “work life integration” which is not the same as work life balance, since work and life now blend together inextricably.
The Core Culture wellness challenge will drive daily positive action across a company's entire team. Each day, employees will receive a powerful educational video paired with one action task to complete. Examples of tasks include, "Rewrite the company's mission statement so that it directly relates to your life", and "When you first sit at your desk today, breathe 20 times through your belly to get present."
'''We are going to enable people to look up from their screens and get to know each other,' says Austin Coding Academy co-founder Luke Filipos."
The Austin Coding Academy (ACA) is a rising school in Texas that is a key creator of the next generation of coders--the scarcest talent resource in the technology industry. "The new coding culture is counter culture," says co-founder Luke Filipos, "We're excited to help elevate teams based on the best practices we use here everyday. We are going to enable people to look up from their screens and get to know each other." In the challenge, ACA draws on their insights from overseeing how and why people come into the coding industry and what makes and breaks the success within tech companies.
Wellshift is excited to partner with the best and brightest to bring new actionable wellness insights into companies nationwide. "This is the first of many exciting things to come," says founder Melanie Weinberger.
