Pavelka House for Cisco

The bespoke health and wellbeing website we built means our partner, Pavelka, can help Cisco’s global workforce lead healthier lifestyles.

The challenge

Cisco is the worldwide leader in IT and networking. As part of their commitment to staff wellbeing, Cisco engaged Pavelka to deliver a bespoke version of their popular health revolution for their 70,000 global employees.

Having already built the Pavelka House, Pavelka commissioned us to design, build and maintain a private website to be the foundation of Cisco’s health initiative. As with any company supplying software to Cisco, we underwent extensive rigorous security checks which we passed in record time thanks to our robust systems and processes.

“Thank you so much for your excellent work creating the Cisco House website. We appreciate your dedication and support to make it a fantastic experience for our employees.”

Making healthy changes stick

Cisco’s ‘House’ enables employees to access exclusive content, plan health goals and activity and connect with other users. To help users make and maintain positive changes we created a dashboard that summarises a user’s health data into meaningful, actionable insights on status and progress. It gives a daily score and customised tips for four key areas of wellbeing – Eat, Sweat, Think and Connect.

The Pavelka team use the aggregated data to identify regional trends and challenges and work with Cisco to build their programme so it best answers employees’ needs.

Digital mass participation

One of the things that makes Pavelka’s programmes unique is their passion for inspiring people by sharing their own experiences.

In 2017, Pavelka director Jill Tipping took part in a charity Channel Swim challenge. Cisco employees were able to get a feel for the effort involved in the challenge and be part of a digital mass participation event by logging their own physical activity into a swim stroke counter. This translated their exercise into swim strokes and placed them on the challenge leaderboard, for example five minutes of jogging would be 295 swim strokes.
