To set up a friendly competition, we are wondering about how long it takes most people to reach gold status.
There are way too many variables involved to give a useful answer to that question. For example, people who participated last year carried forward 10% of their points to begin this year. Folks who have been at it for multiple years will see a snowball effect, and it might only take a few weeks to get to Gold.
Thank you. I understand that, as I made platinum by the end of January and have been with Humana Vitality and Go365 for a while.
Let me rephrase the question: About how long does it take a person to reach gold status if they are brand new to the program and trying to make an effort? We have some people on our program who do not care to play and will not play; little to nothing is going to incentivize them. What is a practical time table for the other people who are new to the program, are trying, but are not in a personal "race" to see if they can make it by the end of January?
Do you have stats on such things? I know there's a draft somewhere of what activities a person might do to reach gold status. About how many steps do average people take per day?
Thanks for your help & feedback.

For people who do the health assessment/biometric screening right away, do two challenges and an activity each month, and track their activities with a device that reports calories burned to Go365, 6 months is realistic. It really depends on how active and motivated they are, though. I changed jobs last year and my new job began July 1, so I started completely from scratch just like a new member. I reached platinum in October. For the step trackers, they can probably make it in 10 months or so.
