New Solution From ShapeUp Activates Employee Engagement During Open Enrollment

ShapeUp Spark

Providence, RI—July 23, 2015—Transform the open enrollment period into a season of fun, healthy competition.  ShapeUp Spark, the newest offering from the leading global provider of holistic wellbeing solutions, is an exciting, turnkey wellness challenge designed to enhance employee wellbeing while boosting engagement in the open enrollment process.

ShapeUp Spark is an effective, efficient wellbeing program, centered upon ShapeUp’s flagship wellness challenge, Ready, Set, Go. In this evidence-based team competition, participants can choose to track their steps, exercise minutes, and/or weight loss, and work together to rise in company-wide team standings. By uniting individuals through shared healthy goals and heightening workplace connections, Ready, Set, Go has a measureable impact on employee engagement, inspiring individuals to take action on their health and become more involved in the open enrollment process.

In addition to Ready, Set, Go, ShapeUp Spark includes seamless implementation, incentives management, rewards fulfillment, reporting, and analysis, all within the span of twelve weeks. ShapeUp Spark begins with a four week implementation process, transitions to a six-week Ready, Set, Go wellness challenge, and culminates with two weeks of rewards fulfillment and program analysis.  A streamlined version of ShapeUp’s clinically-proven wellbeing platform, ShapeUp Spark is built upon the tenets of behavioral psychology, game mechanics, and social dynamics, delivering increased employee engagement across multiple health and benefits initiatives. With a focused approach to wellbeing, ShapeUp Spark is ideal for large employers keen to heighten wellbeing promotion in the remaining months of 2015.

“After nine years of working with large employers all over the country, we’ve become very familiar with the particular pain points of open enrollment,” said Dr. Rajiv Kumar, founder and CEO of ShapeUp. “While open enrollment has traditionally been a time of stress for administrators and confusion for employees, it’s also a critical aspect of ensuring a healthy and happy workforce. Innovative employers are discovering how to capitalize on this event by transforming it into a catalyst for increasing employee engagement in their health. ShapeUp Spark is one way to turn open enrollment into a springboard for healthy action.”

ShapeUp Spark is configurable and integrates with the latest wearable fitness devices and mobile apps, allowing employees to take an active role in their health with maximum convenience. In addition, ShapeUp Spark may be purchased alongside affordable, wireless devices, shipped directly to employees by ShapeUp.

With express implementations beginning over the next month, ShapeUp Spark can be launched in time for peak open enrollment season. To learn more about ShapeUp Spark and additional opportunities to boost employee engagement at your company, please visit
