New “Streaks” Feature from Grokker Promotes Employee Engagement and Healthy Habits

May 1, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Grokker, the on-demand wellbeing solution employees love, today announced the launch of “Streaks,” the newest addition to the company’s enterprise solution. A first of its kind corporate engagement and inspiration feature, Streaks uses a combination of daily rewards and digital reminders to keep employees on a path to positive change.

Grokker founder and CEO Lorna Borenstein explains, “Making a meaningful lifestyle change – no matter how beneficial the results may be – can seem like a daunting task. The fact is, employees don’t need to change their entire lives to improve wellbeing. Grokker Streaks takes a positive, proactive approach that’s easily accomplished with small steps and plenty of kudos, delighting employees as they engage.”

The most recent Gallup State of the American Workplace report says there is a 48 percent likelihood that people with low engagement and wellbeing will leave your company. Recognizing the importance of treating employees like valuable consumers,, Grokker developed Streaks to increase the frequency of healthy activity by combining inspiration and tracking. The new functionality credits user activity across fitness, mindfulness, nutrition and more, emphasizing consistency and offering encouragement to reinforce continued behaviors.

Schools Insurance Group, was an early adopter of Streaks. Amy Gonnella, Member Engagement and Wellness Manager shared, “In launching Grokker, we wanted a solution that allowed us to roll out new features and functions, like Streaks, to a multigenerational workforce. We are looking to inspire people to take more interest in their own health and healthcare, and with Grokker, they’re able to find what works for them. It’s been a great fit.”

Through opt-in daily reminders and app notifications, Streaks makes daily usage top of mind, capturing multi-day streaks and personal records on their Achievement Calendar and in the user’s profile. Employees earn milestone badges and collect kudos when nearing goals that help inspire them to stick to resolutions and stay active.

This echoes the Gallup findings, which indicate that “Employees who know and use their strengths are six times as likely as other employees to be engaged and to say they do what they do best every day. They are also three times as likely to say they have an excellent quality of life.”

Borenstein concluded, “When it comes to making new habits, consistency is key. With this in mind, Grokker Streaks helps organizations support their employees through fun, engaging interactions and self-accountability. This results in healthier, happier and more productive workplaces.”
