Breaking news in the world of FloorD: our NFC competition was written up in the Metro!
That means that UK-wide readers of the Metro newspaper learned about our stair-climbing NFC competition and work for the Mayor of London’s Summer Like No Other.
We’re proud to unveil FloorD, a new competition incorporating the latest technology to get EHSers to step up to a ‘Summer Like No Other’ in London 2012.
We’ve given all our staff NFC (near field communications) computer chips embedded into stickers that they swipe against card readers installed in our stairwells. Every time they swipe, a signal is sent to a central server which keeps track of the number of stairs climbed. And if they swipe too many times or too quickly, the computer smells a rat, assumes they have taken the lift and deducts points for cheating. Each month, prizes are awarded to the departments and individuals with the most points.
