Compass Associates takes part in CRS January 2023 Step Challenge


With the start of a fresh new year and the success of our January 2022 Step Challenge, Compass Associates (As part of CRS) brought it back once again for 2023.

In 2022, CRS took the approach of introducing wellness initiatives throughout the business for all Compass brands, which included moving our monthly run club to weekly (Twice weekly throughout January) and a step count challenge during January. Due to the popularity of the initiative last year, we decided to bring it back for 2023.

The challenge is completely optional and for anyone to take part in across the business. All we asked was for anyone taking part to send in their weekly step count each week, with the winner receiving a £100 voucher of their choice.

Our weekly running club was also moved to twice weekly throughout January for the second consecutive year. This proved incredibly popular once again to help boost people’s health kick with Christmas and New Year now long since past.

Overall, the January Step Challenge saw over 25% of CRS take part and collectively reach 3 million steps in total!

And the winner is…

Compass Associates Consultant, Kate Wallis was the Step Challenge winner by walking almost 400,000 steps throughout January. Last year’s winner, and Compass Life Sciences’ Senior Consulant, Zenon Raddon came in a close second, along with Compass Executives’ Researcher, Tegan Minto coming in third.

“It was amazing to see how many of our consultants got involved in January’s wellness activities!
For a second year running, we had more than 25% of the Portsmouth office attend the running club with lots of new faces. January’s wellness challenge in our Head Office was the ‘step challenge’ and 12 of us took part and collectively walked around 3 million steps. Well done to everyone involved you all did amazing.
