With research showing Australians work more hours each year than any other industrialised country, a new program is aiming to help businesses combat a lack of work-life balance among employees.

The Global Corporate Challenge (GCC) sees participants forming teams of seven, with each person wearing step-counting pedometers to record their daily walking activities. All participants log their results on the GCC website, which organisers hope will result in a virtual walk around the world.

Herb Elliot, GCC chairman, says the benefits of participating includes higher team morale, stronger colleague relationships, weight loss and increased positive attitudes.

Last year, participants in the challenge walked 19.8 billion steps, equivalent to walking to the moon and back seven times.

The challenge begins May 24 and concludes September 25, and runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
