Probably most of us have a knife from Morakniv in our homes. As one of the world’s most popular knife manufacturers with it's roots in Mora, Sweden, the company has been creating sharp knives for the rest of the world for more than 400 years. During the fall 2021 our new global customer kicked off their health challenge with the edgy name "Get Sharp with Morakniv", a challenge that has shown impressive wellness results to be proud of.


In just six weeks the keen staff at Morakniv have increased their everyday exercise with 20,5% with positive effects such as 9% decreased stress, 3,5% improved sleep and 10% increased wellbeing. Wow, you are all certified Challengizers - a person who spreads health, happiness and inspiration to others.

Walking as everyday exercise, one of the top activities by Morakniv's employees


Just getting the less active people to exercise more is a win


Measurable results, team-building, inclusion and “made in Sweden” like Morakniv were key criteria when the famous knife producer chose our digital health challenge and us as a partner.


" Our employee health is critical for our brand and sustainability, so we are very excited and proud about the great outcome from our health investment. Our objective to get as many employees as possible to join the challenge as well as bringing staff from different countries and departments together came true with the digital platform. It allowed individuals and teams to compete on equal terms with both active and the less active employees increasing their level of exercise," says Mikael Helgeson, chairman at Morakniv’s Wellness Club.


The Wellness Club at Morakniv that initiated the health challenge is now looking forward to the next challenge as it will motivate employees to sustain their level of exercise needed to feel and perform better at work.


Besides working with sales at Morakniv Mikael also serves as fireman and he compares it with serving your health.

" It’s important to make your day-to-day exercise a long-term habit. Just like a fire-fighter prepares him/herself to always be ready to jump into his uniform, you should always be ready to jump into your training clothes every day ”, Mikael Helgeson continues.
