The MCO Weight Loss Challenge by Hino Motors Sales (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd

With the objective to encourage Hino Malaysia staff to practice a healthy lifestyle during the Movement Control Order (MCO), where all Malaysian are advised to stay and work from home, Hino Motors Sales (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Hino) initiated this internal campaign. To keep the bonding among the staff, Hino’s management came out with the program and it is part of the concept of ‘Fun & Smile’ implied in Hino’s workplace culture.

Named “Weight Control Order (WCO)”, the campaign ran for one month (1st – 30th April 2020) and saw 30 active participants from within the Hino Malaysia staff. The challenge was simple: all participants were asked to set target for their weight loss with a minimum of 500g. All participants were having an exercise session together for 30 minutes, starting at 5:30 pm via Microsoft’s Teams platform.

As incentive, the champion won a Huawei Smart Watch, while participants who achieve the target received AEON Voucher RM100. To add another level of difficulty, the champion was not solely chosen based on the amount of weight lost, but based on the target achievement.

Example:
Person A: Target to lose 1kg, Achievement: Lose 3kg
Person B: Target to lose 2kg, Achievement: Lose 2kg
Person B is chosen as the Champion

Emerging as the champion was Mohammad Yahiz. His weight loss was set to 5kg and he achieved his target. He is shown here receiving his prize from Mr. Atsushi Uchiyama, Managing Director of Hino Motors Sales (Malaysia).
