buddyboost is an employee wellbeing tool delivered via an easy to use app. We use a simple challenge format to help improve overall wellbeing and to build employee engagement. Once a company embarks on a buddyboost challenge, employees download the app (complete with your organisation’s branding) and commit to doing 26 minutes of activity every day for at least 26 days in the month.
