Wellbeing! Collaboration! Team Building!

Happy and Healthy teams!

Pros

This app enables peers, co-workers across the organization to take-up challenges and promotes healthy competition. Has facilitated team bounding as well as motivated the teams to remain healthy and mindful. The meditation and leaderboard features were instrumental in helping adapt to the #newnormal during Covid19 lockdown. The feature to redeem points for discounts and charity help contribute to the community and local businesses as well.

Cons

Live playlist and a route map showing the daily jog pattern

Response from GoVida

Brilliant incentives, easy to use and highly engaging.

My overall experience with GoVida is excellent. I don’t think I have ever received such efficient and effective customer service in my entire life as I have with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] @ GoVida! Excellent app, so much future potential too; I am looking forward to keeping this as part of my life / habits going forward. My health has already improved, as well as my motivation. It is also a great way to celebrate what was already being done before joining. I would highly recommend it to any business, as well as suggest for there to be a “personal” version for families and friends, as I believe it will do wonders for the mind and body.

Pros

The interface and dashboard is easy to use, well considered and generally intuitive. The integration of fitness trackers such as Apple Health and Fitbit are very helpful and offer excellent ways to combine own personal habits with a celebratory tool / work incentive. Having leaderboards for both steps and points is great; it allows for healthy competition as well as teamwork for the company-wide challenges. Personally, having this app / incentive scheme has really driven me to do just that little bit more when it comes to my health and well-being. My day now starts with “checking in” with myself and how I feel, followed by listening to a couple “mind” audios to help refocus my thoughts. Then I focus on getting my steps in wherever I can; walking rather than bus, doing cardio rather than skipping it, then seeing if a can push to be #1 on the leaderboard for the day! Over just the short time frame that I have had GoVida, I have already seen improvements in my recovery time and heart rate, just by doing the extra cardio. Personally, I am a gym / strength trainer, so having points also for my training sessions at the gyms is particularly useful, especially as my gym was already verified within the app before I started. Overall, this has added an excellent reward system to my personal life; as well as a healthy way to build rapport with my team.

Cons

I had a couple of issues with my steps being not counted as I was using too many trackers at once (I bought a Fitbit, Fitbit and Apple do not currently work together/ integrate as companies, only through 3rd party apps). This was resolved very quickly by [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] at GoVida, who was able to suggest and support me thorough my confusion. It would be interesting to see if there would be a way to add other data / stats into this app. I have been using MyFitnessPal for tracking food / nutrition, as well as weight and body fat. This may be too invasive to share for some people, especially being a work app, but it may be useful for this to be added to personal dashboards. Having a chat option would be funny / a stream / feed where people could chat, “heckle” or add pics. Having more “gym” / “strength trainer” incentives would be much appreciated. 4 weeks to get one set of points for gym is rather long!

Fantastic App!

I am using GoVida from last 6 months and now I am addicted to it. I was not fitness freak earlier. I got busy with my work and daily routines but this app motivated back me to healthy lifestyle. I can track my all activities here. . Competitions, Challenges keep me active all time along with that I get rewards for that too. Just Amazing !!! Grab rewards like for anything from exercise to Meditation. Healthy life + Happy Mind. Love this concept . Thoroughly recommended.

Pros

App is like saviour in this pandemic. Getting rewards for your physical fitness and Meditations is like double bonus. Really like rewards concepts and different mindfulness programs. All are in one place from taking care of all your activities to your mental health.

Cons

Nothing much but having different wearables connected along with different kinds of reward will make app more enjoyable.

GoVida is a fantastic App that has improved the mental and physical wellbeing of our staff

Data has shown that the App has increased the walking distance of our staff members by 23%. The majority of staff using it, engage with the App everyday and it has helped boost staff morale and wellbeing.

Pros

I have enjoyed working as GP for 15 years now in Manchester. During this time I have witnessed how unhealthy lifestyles and behaviours increase the risk of developing chronic diseases.​ I chose general practice as my field of medicine, because of the ability to focus on preventative medicine. Being well aware of this, I was looking for something that could help promote lifestyle and behaviour changes for our staff, as small, sustained, lifestyle changes over time, can all add up to huge physical and wellbeing benefits. We are one of the largest practices in Manchester with just over 40 employees. That is why the GoVida App has impressed me so much, as it has helped our staff members facilitate these changes and provided added motivation through the earning of rewards, a sense of teamwork and camaraderie with colleagues and the ability to earn money for worthy causes. By focusing holistically on both physical and mental health it promotes balance and wellbeing, which not only benefits the user, but those that surround them - eg family, work colleagues. The software looks great, can be personalised and is easy to use and navigate around. There is the option to link activity wearables - eg Apple watches, FitBits. The mindfulness meditations are excellent too, and reward points can be earnt by completing these. The developers are continuously adding new functionality to the App - eg new rewards / live Zoom Yoga and Pilates sessions / new Mindfulness meditations.

Cons

Unable to link Garmin wearables, which some of our staff members have - but I am informed that this is being worked on by the developers, so may be an added feature soon.

Reasons for choosing GoVida

I did look at some alternative apps - but only GoVida provided rewards for engagement with the app in response to hitting activity and meditation targets. I felt that this would give our staff members added motivation. I also read positive reviews from some other companies that were using the App.

Great App, good rewards and easy and simple to use!

As a user I've found this great to encourage me to be more fit and active and to push myself to get those extra steps to either hit a challenge or meet a target. Having visibility over the amount of movement is a great tool to encourage this. I think it is great the company has implemented this given the role is predominantly inactive. I have also enjoyed the team challenges set up, especially in lock down.

Pros

I have found this app great, and during lock down it really has encouraged me to be more fit and active. This has been great to compete in the team challenges we have done encouraging people to get involved and adding in some competitiveness! I love the app and frequently complete the daily challenge, 3 day challenge and marathon weekly challenge. The rewards are good which is good to work towards for a goal. The App is simple to use, and now that it can sync with Fitbit it is absolutely ideal as means i can head out for a walk and don't necessarily need to even have my phone with me.

Cons

Prior to the App being able to sync to Fitbit i found it quite restrictive and it wasn't a correct reflection of my movement and steps, as i often do not have my phone with me. Since this has been resolved it has been great. I have one instance where it would no longer work and sync, however the App team were quick to resolve and it was a painless process.
