“Who are you walking for?”
Four BMS offices located in France, Switzerland, Belgium, and the Netherlands participated in our European Wellness Program. We saw an average improvement of 23.3% in the number of active users, as the percentage of sedentary users decreased from 45.5% to 22.2% over a period of 33 weeks.
My Nokia tracker really made me change my habits. I like the positive reinforcement of the badges and the team spirit that it created.”

Out of the initial 600 Dell EMC employees who were screened for hypertension, 90% were at risk and enrolled in Abacus’ BPM program. Participants used our Wireless Blood Pressure Monitors to record their measurements on the Health Mate app and a HIPAA compliant platform. The app sent daily push notifications, serving as a reminder to check their blood pressure. As a result of the program, the number of participants who actively took their blood pressure measurements doubled. Participants were able to better manage uncontrolled hypertension, shifting their blood pressure from being at risk to low risk and reducing their chances of having a stroke.

A team effort
We partnered with SNCF Transilien and conducted a large-scale health study. Individuals living in Paris and the Île-de-France region were encouraged to participate in a 10-week step challenge – the more they walked, the more points they earned for themselves and their teams. Any resident over the age of 18 was eligible to register and join a team by downloading the Health Mate app. The result of the study revealed that participants using public transportation took on average 1,000 more steps and walked 12% more than those who used a car.
As opposed to using a personal car, combining multiple transport modes helps people walk more. At SNCF, we are convinced, and have proved, that more shared mobility is better for our planet, and we know it is better for our health! This is what we wanted to show in this challenge organized by Nokia.”

"Race around the world”
When Nokia launched a four week Healthier Together activity challenge, 3,000 employees from over 30 countries stepped up, no pun intended. After the challenge, we saw a decrease in medical spending, absenteeism rate, and the number of sick days taken. But most importantly, employee engagement and output levels significantly increased.
Here at Nokia, we take wellness seriously. Below is a video that demonstrates Nokia's internal committment to wellness.

Lose It! is mobilizing the world to achieve a healthy weight by providing a personalized, engaging app-based weight loss program. Nokia and Lose It! share a common goal to create a more seamless, integrated experience for users to help them meet their weight loss goals. Through an API connection, users' weight and body composition data flows directly from the Nokia scale into the Lose It! app.
Pairing a Nokia scale with the Lose It! app streamlines the weigh-in process, eliminating the need to manually enter weight, body fat, and other measurements. Members have reported this connection provides additional accountability and context for weight fluctuations, increasing weight loss motivation. Results from the Nokia-Lose It! partnership underscore the power of this powerful feature: to offer an easy-to-use experience that keeps users engaged and motivated in reaching their goals.
