Tracking technology company Garmin Ltd. has created the Garmin Connect wellness portal, a website designed for corporate wellness programs that allows employers to track the activity data of participating employees.

The wellness portal allows companies to create and implement a wellness program, invite employees to join via email, and engage employees using social interaction and challenges, Garmin said on its website Monday.

Companies can measure progress and overall engagement through an administrative dashboard displaying activity data, Garmin said.

Meanwhile, participants can monitor their individual progress toward fitness goals and track how their progress compares to the rest of the program, Garmin said.

“The introduction of our wellness portal offers an all-in-one solution for companies to encourage and motivate employees to adopt a healthier lifestyle through wellness programs,” Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales, said on the website.
