Why did OSF Digtal choose United Heroes?
OSF Digital is a leading digital transformation company. They have 17 years experience helping businesses throughout their entire digital transformation journey. The company has grown by approximately 400 staff in recent years following several acquisitions.
At the start of the pandemic, national lockdowns forced OSF Digital to temporarily close many of its offices worldwide and supported employees to work from home. With gym facilities also closed to the public, OSF decided to work with United Heroes to launch a corporate wellness program designed to meet different objectives:
Get the company’s workforce moving each day by even the smallest amount
Give the company’s global workforce the ability to interact daily
Pursue a common goal and create an one team identity

The aim of the first challenge ‘One Team: Round the World Challenge’ was to achieve the end goal of clocking up 65,000 kilometers of movement (the total distance between the OSF’s 45 offices across the globe) between the entire workforce in just a single month in July 2021. Participants filmed videos of themselves taking part in the challenge to inspire others to join, while the app showed the collective distance covered by the company’s global workforce.
Once employees had collectively clocked
up 235 kilometers (the distance between
the Quebec and Montreal offices), the
The Montreal office then uploaded a video of
their team and surroundings as they took
part in the challenge. The same process continued from office to office as the distance covered gradually increased and continued into Europe.
The app automatically recorded the distances of people who walked, cycled, and ran, thanks to fitness trackers, such as Garmin and Apple Health. Those who took part in other forms of movement manually uploaded their daily distances to the United Heroes app.
