An inclusive workplace tool proven to increase overall wellbeing.
buddyboost is a workplace wellbeing tool, which allows employees to buddy-up and to support each other to complete some physical activity every day and track their mood.
It’s based on a simple and inclusive challenge format, which is also designed to build employee engagement. The buddyboost app, complete with your company branding and private workplace community feed, gives colleagues somewhere to share pictures and comments from their daily exercise, and to motivate and cheer each other on. So, whether they are working apart or back in the workplace, they’ve got something fun and social to do together.
And, best of all, it really does give their mood a boost at a time when it is increasingly important for organisations to support their eomployees’ wellbeing.
buddyboost addresses at least 4 of the CIPD’s 7 domains of wellbeing.
At the start of the challenge employees register their general mood on the app. This is then compared to the mood they log after completing their daily exercise. And, in case you’re wondering, after doing exercise nearly 90% of all buddyboosters report as feeling ‘happy’ or ‘very happy’, with an average mood boost of 25% seen across all our workplace challenges. It really does work!
Our end of challenge impact reports provide in-depth insight across a range of measures.

buddyboost was co-founded by Robert Tansey, the leader of Sky’s ‘Skyride’ cycling programme and Ian Malcolm, who has previously led large human resource functions.
buddyboost’s development has been supported by a range of experts, each of whom were motivated by their own workplace experiences, and their sincere belief that being active and helping others to do the same is a good way to stay healthier and happier.
