How Buddyboost works

Buddyboost is a wellbeing engagement platform, which uses a unique buddy system and community features to encourage people to come together and help each other form healthy and happy habits.

Using our fun and simple app to complete monthly challenges, people buddy-up and support each other to do something that’s good for them every day for 26 days, while sharing with their colleagues what they’ve been up to in the app’s Community Feed.

Thousands of people across organisations of all shapes and sizes have taken part in our Buddyboost active challenge – doing just 26 minutes of exercise a day – and seen their mood boosted by an average of 25%.

Buddyboost timeout helps people de-stress and re-energise, and Buddyboost good food will help them to eat a little better.

And clients just love the kind of engagement rates they’ve never seen before

Buddyboost works – especially for those who need it most

Our first programme, buddyboost active, has proved incredibly popular, and has had a huge positive impact on the wellbeing of people who were previously inactive.

15,000+ Downloads

41% increase in mood among inactive

64% of users said buddyboost created a sense of camaraderie among colleagues

38% more activity was completed by buddies than individuals

25% average increase in mood across all participants

Mood boost

When they first download the app, users give a rating for their general mood. This is then compared to the mood they log after completing their daily activity. And, in case you’re wondering, after doing 26 minutes of exercise during a buddyboost active challenge, 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.
