Over the past 6 weeks, BrightInsight employees have enjoyed a friendly company-wide fitness competition. The goal? To be on the team that clocked the most minutes spent exercising. Over 180 employees from around the world participated, bringing the company total to 357,458 minutes (or 5,957.63 hours)!
In the spirit of BrightInsight's three pillars of culture—being social, supporting growth, and improving collaboration—employees logged on for twice-weekly Group X Fitness virtual workout classes. The aim wasn't to win a prize, but rather to raise money for charity. A total of $7,600 was donated to the charities selected by the top 3 teams.
In October 2020, we launched our first ever company fitness competition. It was a rousing success, and employees worked hard to bring their teams to victory. This second competition took things to the next level.
