Twelve days into August, Sitel Group has reached its goal of gaining 1 million United Heroes points for its Step Forward, Give, Back Challenge, a fund-raising drive benefiting the United Nations Children’s Fund.
This means Sitel will fufill its pledge of donating $15,000 to UNICEF. When it launched the challenge on August, Sitel set three goals: donating $5,000 when 250,000 points are reached; $10,000 for 500,000 points; $15,000 for 1 million points.
To participate in the challenge, a Sitel employee must register at the sitelfit.com, connect a sports tracking app to the United-Heroes-powered platform, and do a preferred sport. The employee’s progress – miles covered, repetitions done, etc. — is then assigned certain number points by the United Heroes app, which are then added to the group’s score.
More than 9,200 employees participated in the challenge. The 1 million points is a significant addition to the 10 million points that is Sitel’s goal for the 2020, called the #OneSmallChange Challenge.
The Sitelfit program was launched in 2018 to foster a sense of community among Sitel’s 70,000 employees from 200 countries.
