Healthy Competition


Show Us Your Huddle!

In the second Healthy Competition challenge, we want to see how your team huddles! This challenge will run from Monday, January 13 – Sunday, March 8.


Help Us Write Our Theme Song!

Every month, we’re going to be asking you to weigh in on things like theme songs, logos and event activities. Right now, we’re asking for help writing the HMH theme song!

This year, Hackensack Meridian Health is engaging our team members in a whole new way! Our Healthy Competition provides a fun framework for some of the most important programs at HMH, including WAMBI, the Bear’s Den, Team Huddles, and our Trust Index Survey.

We offer a lot of really exciting growth and engagement opportunities, but we’ve listened to your feedback and know you’re still looking for a little more quality time with your teams and leaders. With our new Healthy Competition program, team members will have an opportunity to have some fun, share local pride and connect with others across the network!

There will be four challenges over the next year, culminating in a final competition at our HMH Cup in June 2020. Read on to learn more!

Check out the Scoreboard!

There are 15 teams, competing across three divisions. Team members will have ample opportunity to show team pride throughout the Healthy Competition.

Crowdsource Challenge: Help Us Write the HMH Theme Song!

Sharpen your pencil and share your songwriting skills! WE are writing a theme song for HMH, together. It’s simple really, we don’t need you to write an entire song…a line or two is just great! We will provide all the lyrics to a songwriter and they will use the voice of our team to create our HMH Theme Song! Your lyrics can be compassionate, courageous and (especially) creative. The process? That will be truly collaborative!

Contributors with winning lyrics will be recognized at the HMHCup! So, start humming, singing in the shower and thinking about what makes HMH so great – then write it down using the form below!

Thank you to all the team members who have voted in our crowdsourcing challenges! Below are our winners!
