We invite your organization to complete all three individual challenges, but you are also welcome to complete only one or two.

You can update your scorecard as often as you would like. Please note the judging deadlines to ensure your scorecard(s) is updated to meet those milestones. The next judging deadline is March 1, 2015.
What if I do not sign-up when the Challenge is launched, and therefore would have less than a year to improve my score(s)?
You can begin the Workplace Challenge anytime within the year period; however, the end of the Challenge (April 2015) will remain the same for all participants regardless of when you begin.
What if my business has multiple locations?
You have the option to complete the survey for your entire organization, or you can choose to complete the survey for one particular location (For example: your business is a franchise).
