A few months ago, Berau Coal found out that most of their mining division employees were obese. On average, they have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 — while the ideal BMI is 25. As this was affecting employees’ health and becoming a possible safety hazard, Berau Coal decided to do something about the obesity issue.

How We Designed The Gamified Wellness Program
Collaborating with health experts and Agate’s gamification team, Berau Coal launched the BMI Wellness Program in September 2021. It’s a gamified wellness program that aims to help employees build healthier habits. Hosted in Levio, the program has 22 missions, which include healthy meal plans from nutritionists, workout plans & fitness webinars with professional coaches, and regular weight monitoring. The staff got points they can collect for every accomplishment in the program, and they can compete against each other. A leaderboard also shows who has the most weight loss.
Other than health experts, the program also involved Berau Coal’s human resource division. The HR division assisted the operations and provided additional rewards for those who landed in the top 5 of the leaderboard. So, the staff who lost the most weight could win various benefits, like merchandise and free training programs. In the first month, all the participants have managed to lose weight. Romadiansyah, who lost a whopping 13 kg of body weight, secured the top of the leaderboard.

The Impact of BMI Wellness Program
Romadiansyah was one of the employees who participated in the program. He realizes that being obese was limiting his life, and the program could help. His family, especially his wife, supported his participation in the program. After joining, Roma finds that gaining EXP and points motivates him to consistently exercise and eat healthier. Because the missions gave him small, clear goals to reach, and he managed to finish his mission with flying colors.
In Roma’s own words, “The program was fun, and it rewards me to regularly do healthy habits. BMI Wellness Program shows me that losing weight and being healthier is possible!”
By the end of the program in the second week of December 2021, some of the staff had lost over 20 kg of body weight. Hopefully, the healthy habits we built through the program and Levio learning platform will help everyone live healthier in the future as well!
