How it works

Learn how you can use Shine to engage your organization:

1. Create Challenges

Encourage employees to make a difference with a Shine Challenge! Shine makes it easy to set up a Challenge for any initiative your company has.

2. Log Actions

Users record actions in the app as they do them. These actions earn points and achievements, and users make a positive impact on themselves and their communities!

3. See the Impact

At the end of the Challenge, everyone can see the collective impact earned through competition and goal setting. Plus, the new behaviors picked up by Challenge members stick around long after it’s ended.

Your Look, Your App

Show the world and your employees you care! Put an app customized to your brand in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. Invite only your employees or expand your network to include friends, family, and suppliers and get everyone engaged!
