Gamification Challenge Types

Gamification Challenge Types

Get inspired with our various challenge options and client success stories. At WeFitter, we focus on gamification where employees are triggered to be more active. There are countless possibilities! We would like to elaborate on our different challenge types, examples of challenges and successful challenges organized by clients. 

 

Challenge types

  • Individual challenge
  • Goal challenge
  • Team challenge
  • Global challenge
  • Streak/stick to it challenge

 

Individual challenge

Boost up individual competitiveness with an individual challenge.

This challenge can be played privately to support a single user with achieving their goals, or public to play with other users. A public challenge will be played individually to hit a goal, become the highest in the leaderboard without a goal or reach a goal multiple times after each other to maintain a streak. Repetition of the challenge can be set through the dashboard.

Challenge combinations:

  • Individual goal challenge
  • Individual leaderboard challenge
  • Individual stick to it challenge
  • Individual streak challenge

Examples:

  • A user completes a self-determined challenge of burning 500 kcal a day in January.
  • Take 10,000 steps every day this month.
  • Walk for 20 minutes every day during your lunch break for the next few weeks.

 

Team challenge

Work on teambuidling in your community!

A team challenge is a type of challenge in which the user is participating with team members against other teams. All individual progress of the team will be accumulated. With a team challenge you have the possibility to set-up a goal or leaderboard challenge.

Challenge combinations:

  • Team goal challenge
  • Team leaderboard challenge
  • Team stick to it challenge
  • Team streak challenge

Examples:

  • Each team competes to hit the highest place in the leaderboard before 10 days are over.
  • Each team walks with each other for 10 minutes every day for three weeks.
  • Each team is challenged to collectively burn as many calories as possible in 2 weeks.

 

Global challenge

Together we run the world!

A global challenge is a type of challenge in which the user is participating with all other participants. All individual progress will be accumulated. A challenge that is played privately is only visible to the pre-enrolled users in the app. If the challenge is public, it's visible for every participant/member in the same app. All individual scores are aggregated in the global challenge.

Challenge combinations:

  • Global goal challenge
  • Global leaderboard challenge
  • Global stick to it challenge
  • Global streak challenge

Examples:

  • If all users' progress together hits 40,000 km, an X amount of money goes to charity.
  • If all users' progress together hits 1,000,000 steps, an X amount of money goes to a new business gym/healthy lunch deals during the lunch break.

 

Leaderboard challenge

Work together and reach the highest number in the leaderboard.

Want to see who performs best and competes for first place? Start a leaderboard challenge! A leaderboard challenge doesn't have a goal. That means that the challenge is going into a leaderboard set-up, where users must achieve the highest position in the leaderboard before the time of the challenge runs out. Users will play with or against each other to reach the highest number within the time given in the challenge. 

Challenge combinations:

  • Individual leaderboard challenge
  • Team leaderboard challenge
  • Global leaderboard challenge

Examples:

  • All users have three weeks to get the highest place in the leaderboard based on steps. No goal!
  • All users have one week to get the highest place in the leaderboard based on kilometres cycled. 
  • All users have four weeks to get the highest place in the leaderboard based on kcal.
     

Stick to it challenge

Create healthy habits for your end-users with the stick to it challenge!

In this challenge users must stick to the goal set as much as possible in the given period of the challenge. The times hitting the goal is their score in the leaderboard. This challenge can be played privately or publicly. In a private challenge only users that are enrolled manually can participate and in a public challenge all users in the app will be able to participate in the challenge. This challenge is required to have a repetitive goal for which users will get +1 point in the leaderboard when reaching the goal in the given time. Users can play with each other globally or against each other individually or in teams, to reach the goal within the time given in the challenge. No further streak is required for this challenge to get points in the leaderboard. 

Challenge combinations:

  • Individual stick to it challenge
  • Team stick to it challenge
  • Global stick to it challenge

Examples:

  • All users must get a weekly goal of 100 points, as many times as possible, in six months.
  • All users must walk 20 minutes a day, as many times as possible, in two months.
  • All users must achieve 40,000 steps a week, as many weeks as possible, in four months.

 

Streak challenge

Go all in with the streak challenge!

Let users hit their challenge goal as many times as possible, but in a row. The longest streak has the highest score in the leaderboard. Challenge goal achievements will be calculated in the leaderboard every time the goal is hit. All users will get +1 points in the leaderboard by reaching the goal within the time set.

Challenge combinations:

  • Individual streak challenge
  • Team streak challenge
  • Global streak challenge

Examples:

  • All users achieve a daily goal of 5,000 points as many times in a row as possible in three weeks time.
  • All users achieve a daily goal of 10,000 steps as many times in a row as possible in six weeks time.
  • All uers must cycle 15 kilometres a week, as many times in a row as possible in four months.
